Chicago Rollover Collisions
Rollover crashes can be the cause of both driver error and roadway conditions. Sometimes, drivers are behaving erratically, veering in and out of lanes or speeding down the highway. In other cases, roadway conditions make it so a vehicle turns over, perhaps when navigating a steep curve or encountering another roadway hazard.
Whatever the case, rollovers can result in serious injuries for passengers. A majority of fatal rollover crashes involve unrestrained occupants. Nearly 7,600 people were killed in rollover collisions in 2010.
