Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 2-Apr-2013
A SUV rollover in Coal County claimed the life of a Colgate woman who lost control of the sport utility vehicle she was driving and it overturned twice, coming to a rest on its wheels.
The woman, who was killed in the rollover outside Colgate, was identified by officials as 29-year-old Brenda Beck, a Colgate resident. Beck was, reportedly, driving the 1999 Ford SUV at the time of the single vehicle crash.
Authorities said Beck was ejected from the vehicle through the windshield. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the Colgate rollover accident in Oklahoma.
Her passenger, identified by police as 22-year-old Natasha Shores, was transported to St. John Medical Center via helicopter. Shores was recently listed in stable condition.
Police are still investigating the scene of the rollover accident in Oklahoma.
The glass used in vehicles is a vital component in cars, trucks and SUV’s. While it helps provide visibility, it, more importantly, helps keep occupants within a vehicle, during even the most severe accidents. Standards highlight the importance of using laminated glass in windshields, in order to prevent defective auto glass from shattering and leaving occupants vulnerable to ejection.
