Driver Injured in Rollover Accident in Monongalia County, Morgantown, West Virginia

Morgantown, W.Va. – At approximately 9:30 a.m., multiple volunteer fire departments from Monongalia County received a call regarding a pickup truck accident on Tyrone Avery Road.

First responders found the overturned pickup truck, which had sustained significant damage, including a collapsed roof. The driver, who was the vehicle’s sole occupant, was trapped inside the wreckage.

Emergency crews extricated the driver from the mangled truck.

The driver was transported to a local trauma center.

The extent of the injuries is unknown.

Thoughts on Rollover Accidents

Simple safety-proof rules: roofs should not collapse. Seatbelts should restrain. Unfortunately, many car manufacturers fail these basic rules. Images of the truck show a crushed, collapsed roof. Manufacturers know that roofs can collapse during a rollover accident and they must design vehicles strong enough to withstand the rollover sequence.

When a vehicle has a top that cannot withstand a rollover, the vehicle may be defective. Manufacturing companies that continue to produce trucks and SUVs with defective roofs need to be held accountable when their negligent actions cause injuries or deaths.

Trained professionals will need to investigate this accident further to see if the injuries suffered in this crash were caused by the roof crushing in during the rollover accident. If a manufacturing defect contributed to this person’s injuries, the manufacturer must be held accountable. Trained lawyers can ensure the victim receives financial compensation to help with hospital bills, lost wages, and any pain and suffering the accident caused them.

I’m wishing the victim a speedy recovery.
