Six Injured in Belton Car Accident on I-35
Two adult and four child occupants in an SUV were injured in a rollover car accident on I-35 when the driver of the SUV swerved to avoid a vehicle stopped ahead of them, police said.
Although the names of the victims injured in the car accident on I-35 in Belton, police said that the occupants in the vehicle were transported to Scott & White Memorial Hospital via ground ambulances.
One of the children in the SUV was ejected during the rollover accident.
Officials believe the unidentified SUV rolled over at least three times before coming to a stop.
Authorities are still investigating the scene of the Belton accident.
Rollover accidents are some of the most deadly kinds of accidents, accounting for as many as 33% of auto accident fatalities, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Because of the high center of gravity, SUV’s in particular, can pose a specific risk of overturning. Additionally, defective tires, glass, roof pillars and other auto equipment are sometimes tied to injuries and death endured because of the vehicle’s failure to protect occupants and keep them within the vehicle as it overturns.
