Northeast Texas Rollover Accident Ejects, Kills Carpenterville Woman

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 20-Dec-2011

A rollover accident in Northeast Texas claimed the life of a Carpentersville woman, Sunday morning, when the driver of an SUV she was driving in lost control of the vehicle and overcorrected, causing the Ford Explorer to roll multiple times.

According to police, 47-year-old Maria G. Hernandez was ejected from the 1997 Ford Explorer. The driver of the SUV and three other occupants were injured in the rollover crash in Texas and were transporting to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. They were recently listed in stable condition, authorities said.

Rollover accidents have been filling the news in Texas as more and more distractions exist, accompanied by the instability of SUV’s and trucks.

With higher centers of gravity, SUV’s are a particular rollover risk. Additionally, certain defects that have plagued Ford Explorers have created a vehicular environment that can actually endanger vehicle occupants rather than protect them during a rollover accident.

Defective tires and the boxy design of earlier models of Ford SUV’s have highlighted a particular propensity of rollover because of the lacking crashworthiness.
