Deadly Rollover Accidents in Ohio
Certain types of collisions are more likely to result in fatal injuries. Rollovers are some of the most lethal types of collisions possible. In 2010, rollovers were only involved in an estimated 2.2% of reported car crashes in the United States. However, that same year, rollovers accounted for nearly 35% of fatal vehicle collisions nationwide, resulting in over 7,600 fatalities. Of those killed, an estimated 69% of deceased victims were reportedly unrestrained at the time of the crash.
