Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 26-Aug-2013

A collision sparked a rollover accident outside Gatesville on Saturday, leaving the driver of an SUV dead and sending four others to the hospital, police reported.

The man who was killed as a result of the auto accident was identified as 37-year-old Nathaniel Graham, a resident of Hamilton, Texas. Police said Graham was pronounced dead at the scene of the Texas car accident.

According to a report published by KWTX News, the driver of a Dodge passenger vehicle collided with a Nissan SUV, which Graham was driving. As a result of the collision, the Nissan overturned. Two children and Graham’s wife, Sharla Graham, 37, were also in the vehicle at the time of the rollover wreck. They were transported to Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

The driver of the smaller vehicle was identified as 42-year-old Lisa Truitt, a resident of Gatesville. Truit was also transported to an area hospital.

All of those injured were recently listed in fair condition, officials said.

Police did not yet reveal whether occupants in either vehicle were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash on Hwy 36.

Many rollover crashes occur when a vehicle becomes tripped up, such as during a motor vehicle accident or collision. Additionally, some rollover crashes take place as a result of overcorrection. Despite the causes associated with this type of accident, vehicles are designed to safegaurd occupants from ejection and serious injuries associated with roof crush. The way seatbelts and airbags function can play an important role in keeping occupants inside the vehicle.
