Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 5-Mar-2013

A rollover accident that claimed the life of a father and sent a mother to the hospital in critical condition left a young boy wandering the scene of the single-vehicle crash near Conroe, Texas, officials said.

Police identified the young man who was killed in the Conroe rollover as 23-year-old Eric McCarthy. His wife, who was transported to the hospital with serious injuries, was identified as Amber McCarthy. Their young son was identified as 4-year-old Tanner McCarthy.

According to a report published by KSAT News, the family was traveling to a family member’s home at the time of the wreck. They were a mere two blocks from the house, police said.

Police reported a long stretch of skid marks in the road near the scene of the rollover accident and are still investigating what may have caused the loss of control that prompted the crash.

SUV’s and pickup trucks have a particularly high rate of rolling because of the instability and higher center of gravity that can make them easily imbalanced when tripped up or overcorrected. But despite the risk of overturning, auto makers have the information necessary to protect occupants in many rollover situations. The crashworthiness and reinforcement protecting the head and neck space of occupants from the crushing blows of an inadequate roof is vital to keeping drivers and passengers safe from debilitating injury.
