Rollover Accidents in Albuquerque
Rollover collisions can cause serious injuries. Out of 9.1 million car crashes involving an SUV, pickup, or van crash in 2010, only 2.1 percent were rollover crashes. However, rollovers still accounted for 35 percent of all fatal collisions that year.
There are a host of reasons why rollovers are dangerous for those involved. Victims could become projectiles, injuring other occupants and themselves in the process. They could also be ejected from the car, especially if they aren’t properly restrained.
