Rollover accidents can be provoked by a variety of factors. One of the most common links to auto rollovers is overcorrection, which sometimes occurs when a driver loses control of the vehicle. In addition, some rollover accidents take place when a piece of the vehicle’s equipment fails, such as a tire blowout or tread separation.
While there are many triggers that may spark a rollover, equipment in vehicles is designed to protect occupants from ejection and roof crush that can result in serious injuries and death.
The pillars in the roof of a vehicle are designed to reinforce the roof, preventing it from collapsing on the space between the roof itself and an occupant’s head and neck. In addition, the glass used in a vehicle, is an important component, in addition to seatbelts, that can help keep occupants inside the car, truck or SUV, even as it overturns or glass breaks.
