Rollover Accidents in Illinois
Rollover collisions can be traumatic, and occupants of an overturned vehicle are at greater risk of suffering from life-threatening injuries. There were 7,600 people killed in rollover collisions in 2010. That year, rollovers were only involved in 2.1% of reported car accidents, but they were involved in nearly 35% of fatal passenger-vehicle crashes. Nearly 69% of those killed in rollover accidents were unrestrained at the time of the accident.
