A reportable accident takes place about every 92 seconds in our state. In many car accidents, often those which take place at high speeds, a vehicle rollover is involved. Rollover crashes tend to be more serious than other accidents because they expose the driver and passengers to multiple impacts which can cause catastrophic and debilitating injuries. Our thoughts are with those injured in this collision for a speedy and complete recovery.
