Kayla was pronounced dead at the scene and her sister was transported to Scott and White Hospital, with unidentified injuries.
Single vehicle rollovers are becoming increasingly common, sometimes due to car, truck and SUV defects. While both voluntary and forced recalls of vehicles provide one manner of identifying potential problems that could be dangerous for drivers and passengers, some dangerous defects go unnoticed.
Knowing your vehicle and having it regularly inspected is one way of keeping cars and trucks safe for occupants. In addition, staying updated aboutrecalls related to your vehicle is imperative to protecting you and your passengers.
