Rollover Accident in San Antonio Injures Teen

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 5-Mar-2012

A rollover accident in San Antonio sent one teen to the hospital with serious injuries after she was cut-off by another driver on I-37.

The unidentified teenager was injured when the SUV she was driving overturned, landing on the shoulder on its roof.

She was transported to Christus Santa Rosa Hospital. Police said the injuries she sustained are non-life threatening.

Rollover accidents are often caused when the driver of a vehicle loses control of the car or it becomes tripped up on an object or surface. In the situation where a driver may have cut the teen off while traveling the interstate, swerving, jerking the steering wheel or maneuvering to avoid a collision could provoke imbalance, especially among an SUV vehicle, which has a higher center of gravity.

Safer vehicle design and greater attention to some of the protective equipment in a vehicle, in relation to crashworthiness, are just some of the ways auto makers can help safeguard drivers and passengers from some of the neck injuries, head injuries, spine injuries and back injuries associated with rollover accidents.

In addition, drivers should take care when sharing the roadways, to insure their actions don’t cause other drivers to have to jerk their steering wheel or take action that could cause a loss of control.
