Being involved in a rollover is a traumatic event. Sadly, many occupants are killed in rollover crashes every year. Many of these victims are ejected from the vehicle at the time of the accident.
Each year, nearly 35 percent of all passenger vehicle deaths involve rollover accidents. In a majority of cases, deceased victims were unrestrained at the time of the crash.
