(Monday, March 28th) A fatal single-vehicle rollover crash occurred leaving a 4-year-old child deceased at the scene. The Boerne police were dispatched at 2:13 p.m. The accident happened on eastbound I-10 near mile marker 539. An initial investigation revealed that the driver of the black SUV was unable to control the vehicle and overcorrected, causing the SUV to roll repeatedly.
The SUV had three passengers and a driver, the driver was an adult female, and the passengers were an infant, a 2-year old child, and a 4-year-old child. The Initial investigation revealed the children possibly weren’t appropriately restrained in their child safety seats. Unfortunately, all of the children were ejected from the car when the crash occurred, some of them suffering fatal injuries. The 4-year-old was declared dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Michelle Van Stavern of Precinct 1. The other three who sustained injuries were rushed to University Hospital in San Antonio for medical attention.
When the right conditions exist, any vehicle can rollover; however, SUVs and vans are most likely to suffer from these types of dangerous collisions. In the United States, SUVs are being bought at a higher rate than any other type of vehicle. In a city like San Antonio, where there is a high concentration of traffic, such a crash can cause multiple injuries or even death if one of these big vehicles flips or rolls over.
Most rollover deaths occur because of passengers being thrown out of SUVs through the windshield, which is why it’s imperative to wear a seatbelt while riding in one. Even if an individual properly restrains themselves in their vehicle, suffering injuries is not uncommon in these types of accidents, especially injuries sustained on the head due to the roof of the automobile caving in upon impact.
