Deadly Rollover Crashes in New York

Hempstead, NY - Fatal Rollover Accident on Meadowbrook State PkwyYou can never be completely prepared for a devastating car accident. It is known that rollover collision victims can suffer potentially fatal injuries in a matter of seconds. The people inside a car run the risk of being ejected when it rolls, especially if they are not wearing seatbelts. Although they are involved in less than three percent of reported collisions, rollovers are responsible for approximately 30 percent of traffic fatalities nationwide. The majority of these fatalities involved unrestrained passengers. The number of rollover crashes in the United States is on the rise, and some believe that this is partially due to the rising popularity of SUVs, pickup trucks, and other top-heavy vehicles.
