Temple Rollover Accident on I-35 Critically Injures Woman & Infant
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 24-Sep-2012
A rollover accident in Temple sent an infant and mother to the hospital with critical injuries after the driver of the SUV lost control of the vehicle after swerving to avoid debris in the roadway on I-35, officials said.
The rollover crash occurred on September 23, 2012 at approximately 7:15 p.m., and no identities have been released to the public yet.
The driver of the vehicle was, however, identified as the infant’s mother. She was transported to Scott & White Hospital in Temple, after her arm was trapped between the SUV and the roadway following the rollover.
According to officials on the scene of the Temple rollover crash on I-35, the infant was ejected from the SUV. The baby was transported to Scott & White Children’s Hospital.
The other adult in the vehicle, who was a passenger, was identified as a 29-year-old male. He was also transported to Scott & White Hospital.
While road hazards can cause drives to swerve and later overcorrect in order to regain control over their vehicle, most vehicles are designed with the capabilities to protect occupants from serious injuries and death. The roof of a vehicle and the pillars reinforcing it should withstand the impact of a rollover and protect the space between the roof and an occupant’s head and neck.
In addition, the glass used on a vehicle is also designed to keep occupants within the vehicle and prevent ejection. Ejection and partial ejection can sometimes be associated with defective auto glass.
