Belton Man Killed in For Explorer Rollover Accident in Bell County

A man was killed in a rollover car accident in Bell County on Wednesday, after he lost control of his 1999 Ford Explorer and it rolled several times.

Police identified the victim of the single vehicle car accident in Bell County as 25-year-old Beau Simons of Belton. Simons was pronounced dead at the scene of the Belton car accident. Police said he was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to reports by News Channel 25, Simons was traveling a mile south of Belton, on George Wilson Rd., when he lost control and overcorrected the Ford Explorer. The SUV rolled multiple times.

Earlier Ford Explorers have struggled with the risks associated with rollovers because of the boxy design, high center of gravity and plague of defective tires.

In addition to other risks associated with the crashworthiness of a vehicle, the roof design and materials can b a great indicator of how the roof will hold up during a rollover, as the top of a vehicle impacts the ground or surface. In some instances when the roof crushes into the protective space of a driver or passenger causing serious neck injuries, head injuries and brain injury, the roof pillars associated were not effective in safeguarding occupants from danger.

Auto manufacturers have the information, data and technology to create safe vehicles for consumers that protect them, even during a serious car accident.
