Hill Country Rollover Accidents
Any type of auto accident is dangerous, but Hill Country rollover accidents are tragic for both passengers and other drivers sharing the road. Annually, over 280,000 accidents in which the vehicle rolls over are reported. These accidents result in more than 10,000 deaths every year. This accounts for about 30 percent of all vehicle fatalities. Many of this rollovers take place in the Hill Country near San Antonio.
Small children are unfortunately more exposed to the consequences of these accidents, due to their small size. Rollover accidents also result in the highest number of fatalities over any other type of accident.
Hill Country rollover accidents are especially fierce and are the result of a complex set of circumstances. More than any other type of auto accident, it combines the elements of driver behavior, road conditions, environment, and vehicle operation to create a dangerous scenario for anyone in the vehicle. All of these factors work together and result in what are often the most violent car crashes one can experience.
Any vehicle style can experience a rollover, but some types are more prone to them. SUVs, pickups, and vans have higher centers of gravity. Their narrower wheelbase and height make them particularly susceptible to rollover crashes.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 35.7 percent of fatal SUV crashes were the result of a rollover accident while only 15.8 percent of passenger car accidents in which the car rolled over resulted in fatalities. This alone indicates a greater risk for SUVs to rollover.
