Gage Holmes Killed in Single-Vehicle Rollover Accident on Shaffer Road near Brown Road in Darke County, Ohio

Darke County, Ohio — Gage Holmes passed away in a single-vehicle rollover crash early Saturday morning. The incident occurred on Shaffer Road near Brown Road, just west of Versailles, around 6:15 a.m.

Reports state that Holmes’s Dodge Ram 3500 veered off the right side of the roadway and overturned multiple times before coming to rest on its top.

Holmes succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on rollover accidents and defects in certain trucks

The deceased’s family deserves to know if a defect in the vehicle caused their loved one’s fatal injuries. Recurring defects in these types of trucks include roofs crushing occupants ( structure could not withstand the impact of a rollover), seatbelts that come unlatched or fail to restrain, and airbags that do not deploy or activate.

Manufacturers have a duty to produce vehicles that protect occupants in rollover accidents. They must be held responsible when this does not happen.

An investigation by trained professionals may provide additional insight into the accident and whether the manufacturer of the truck is responsible for a loss of life.
