Emergency responders were called to the scene of a rollover crash. A vehicle overturned at the scene and several people were trapped inside. The trapped victims were extricated by responding emergency units. 

Of the nine people inside the vehicle, a man and woman died due to the crash. The seven remaining victims were hospitalized, with five reportedly being in critical condition. No additional information has been provided at this time.

Deadly Rollover Accidents in New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM - Two Killed, Seven Hurt in Rollover on University BlvdIf a car flips over, the occupants are likely to suffer serious injuries. In the United States, rollover accidents kill a disproportionate number of people. In 2010, nearly 69% of rollover deaths involved unrestrained occupants. In that year, approximately 7,600 people were killed in rollover accidents. Rollovers were involved in nearly 35% of fatal collisions in 2010, despite accounting for less than 2% of all traffic accidents.

When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. On the other hand, getting that compensation is frequently easier said than done. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the perpetrator of blame. After a fatal accident, insurance companies for those who are at fault frequently try to shift blame. Instead of compensating the deceased's family members following a fatal car accident, the defendant should compensate the family members to help with accident-related expenses. You'll need the assistance of a car accident lawyer in Albuquerque who has extensive experience representing wrongful death victims.
