Sidewall Blow Out

I was driving down the 5 today and the inner sidewall of my Hankook Sport Ventus K104 265/30/19 blew out. Tires only had 4k miles on them, pressures checked weekly (38 psi) and no potholes/debris hit to my knowledge. The tire has sustained more damage than just the hole from the blowout from rubbing on the rim as I was trying to pull over and what appears to be a gouge on the bottom of the tire.

So the question for the TireRack pros, is this something that should be covered under Hankook's Road Hazard warranty? It should be less than 25% tread worn thus far at 4k miles.

Also, does anyone know of an authorized Hankook dealer in Santa Clarita?
