Thoughts on Rollover Accidents in Icy Weather

We don’t have many details to draw conclusions about what happened in this incident. We are left with many questions. What type of vehicle was the injured driving? Did the safety features of the vehicle function correctly? Did the seatbelts restrain and the airbags deploy? Did the roof stay intact, or did it collapse?

Rollover accidents are very dangerous, and car manufacturers have a responsibility to produce vehicles that can withstand rollover accidents and safely protect those In the vehicle. When a manufacturer fails to do this, they need to give an account of what went wrong and why.

Whether the injured in this crash was provided the protection she deserved remains to be seen. A detailed investigation into the crash will determine exactly what happened and if any wrongdoing on the part of the manufacturer is to blame.
