Common Causes of Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents are especially violent, dangerous forms of accidents
that can result in
catastrophic injuries to those who are involved. While there are numerous factors that can play
a role in the causing of them, there are a few conditions that can lead
to them occurring.
Some of the common causes include the following:
Vehicle Type – Due to a high center of gravity, certain vehicles are more prone
to rollover in a crash. Examples of rollover-prone vehicles include sport
utility vehicles (SUVs), pick-up trucks, and vans.
Speed – Fatal rollover accidents are more likely to include excessive speeding
than fatal non-rollover crashes. For example, an estimated 40% of fatal
rollovers involved excessive speed.
Alcohol – According to the NHTSA, almost half of all fatal rollover crashes involved alcohol.
Location – Often, fatal rollovers occur on rural roads that do not have dividers or
barriers of any kind. These roads are also commonly where the posted speed
limit is 55 miles per hour or higher.
