Where do most deadly rollover crashes take place?

When it comes to traffic collisions, there are many risks to keep in mind. Sometimes, people lose their lives because of drunk drivers, while others pass away in accidents that happened as a result of ice on the road. Sadly, rollover accidents can be particularly perilous and these accidents have claimed many lives over the years. If you are worried about the likelihood of a fatal rollover accident, you may find value in going over some of the characteristics of these tragic accidents.

Material put together by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides a closer look at statistics on deadly rollover crashes. According to the NHTSA, nearly three out of every four fatal rollover wrecks occur on roads in a rural location. There may be different explanations for this trend, such as the lack of barriers on many rural roads. Almost 85 percent of deadly rollover crashes only involve one driver, but it is important to keep in mind that the rest do not. Sometimes, these crashes happen because of another driver's negligent behavior.

With almost half of the deadly rollover accidents that occur, drivers had alcohol in their systems. Moreover, reaching excessive speeds is another factor that plays a role in many of these accidents. Even though any type of vehicle has the potential to roll over, these accidents are more likely with certain vehicles, such as pickup trucks, vans, and SUVs. If a rollover accident has shattered your life, it could be smart to review your legal options.
