Handling SUV Rollovers, Truck Rollovers and More
Vehicles that have high centers of gravity — such as SUVs, semi trucks and vans — tend to be more susceptible to rollover accidents. According to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS):
- Rollovers are responsible for approximately 55 percent of semi-truck fatalities.
- Victims were not wearing seat belts in 78 percent of fatal rollover accidents involving single vehicles.
- 64 percent of the victims were partially or completely ejected from their vehicles.
