“Crashworthiness” is an automotive industry term that refers to the ability of a vehicle to withstand a certain level of impact in a collision. In a rollover accident, one important part of a vehicle that must be sufficiently crashworthy is the roof.
When a vehicle’s roof is not designed to remain intact in the event of a rollover accident, the vehicles’ occupants are at a high risk of serious injury or death from the roof crushing in on them.
While any type of vehicle should be designed to the highest possible safety standards, roof crush rollover accidents are of particular concern in pickup trucks and SUVs.
