Rollover Accidents in Kansas

Lenexa, KS - Several Hurt in Rollover on I-35 at I-435Rollover crashes are often more serious than other kinds of collisions. Passengers can easily be ejected when a car rolls, and this can result in serious injuries or even fatalities. Of course, there is a greater chance of this happening if you are not wearing a seatbelt. Unfortunately, unrestrained occupants are involved in most rollover fatalities. Even with a seatbelt on, though, not everyone is completely safe—occupants who were buckled up account for about 33 percent of rollover deaths. Most rollover crashes involve just one car, but many involve two or more. A rollover may result from several factors, with poor driving and inclement road conditions being some of the most common.
