Driver Escapes Injury in Killeen Rollover Accident
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 14-Oct-2011
A single vehicle rollover occurred, Friday afternoon, on Highway 190 off Kasper Road in Killeen, The Carlson Law Firm investigative team said.
Although the white Montero Sport SUV lost control, causing the Texas rollover accident, no other drivers were involved and intital reports have noted that no one was injured in the crash.
Despite the absense of injury, pictures of the wreckage, provided by our team, highlight the instability that some SUV’s have, making them particularly vulnerable to rollover accidents on Texas highways.
Loss of vehicle control from overcorrection or delayed reactions that result in jerks of the steering wheel or screeching stops can quickly provoke tripped up SUV’s and trucks to lose balance, flipping and potentially crushing occupants with each roll.
In addition to ejection, rollover accidents can sometimes result in roof crush, a situation that leaves many victims who experience it with fatal or life altering brain injuries, spinal injuries and neck injuries.
Since overcorrection and late, jolting reactions can easily throw vehicles with higher centers of gravity off balance, drivers should take care to pay close attention to traffic surrounding, road conditions and other factors that require attentive acknowledgement.
