Deadly Rollover Crashes in Union County
Rollover collisions are some of the most dangerous types of accidents imaginable, with a much higher fatality rate than other crashes. In 2010, of nearly 9.1 million reported car, van, truck, and van accidents, only around 2.1% of accidents involved rollover collisions. However, that year, 35% of fatal passenger-vehicle accidents were rollovers. A reported 7,600 people were killed in rollovers that year, and of those killed, nearly 69% were unrestrained at the time of the accident.
