Frequency of Roll over Accidents

Most of us spend most of our time on the road traveling from one place to another for work, leisure activity or fun. Expectedly, we face great risk of meeting an accident – a roll over crash for instance.

True enough, when a family of five was on their way home from a fishing trip, a roll over crash spoiled their day. They were sent to the hospital although sustaining minor injuries. The reports failed to state the reason for the accident.

In a more recent roll over accident involving two vehicles - Chrysler sedan and a Chevrolet Suburban, it appeared that defects in the design of one of the vehicles were apparent.

The said accident had been the subject of a blog “Three Injured in Santa Rosa Chevy Suburban Rollover Accident” posted on August 3, 2008.

These accidents happened only in two months!

Ultimately, roll over accidents or crashes pertain to the vehicle’s stability in making turns. It usually happens to pickup trucks or sport-utility vehicles. The typical cause is that the vehicle is either so loaded or simply defective.

Regardless of the cause of the accident, we should be alarmed. Accident like that should not suppose to happen at all much more on a monthly basis. Action should be taken to prevent, if not completely eliminate, this kind of accident.
