Rollover collisions are dangerous and potentially deadly accidents that often result in fatalities. While only a small number of total accidents involve a vehicle overturning, a large percentage of total vehicle fatalities take place in these types of accidents.
Some vehicles are more prone to rolling over than others. Vehicles that are taller and more top heavyare more likely to overturn. SUVs, vans, and pickup trucks all have a greater risk overturningover as compared to sedans.
Vehicle occupants have a much higher chance of surviving rollover crashes if they use their seatbelts. People who fail to buckle up are ata greater risk of being ejected from their vehicles. Vehicle ejections are extremely deadly. Nearly three-quartersof all people ejected from vehicles are killed. While airbags provide extra protection for people in crashes, this safety feature is only effective when a person is kept in place by a seatbelt.
