Leo Espinoza Dies in a Rollover Accident near Gold Ranch on I-80 in Reno, Nevada

Reno, Nevada – Leo Espinoza died in a rollover crash on Interstate 80 near the Gold Ranch exit.

Authorities responded to reports of a Chevrolet truck overturned on its roof. Upon arrival, they discovered the lifeless body of Espinoza inside the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No further details have been provided.

Thoughts on rollover crashes caused by defective vehicles

Rollover accidents, such as this one involving a Chevrolet truck, should be investigated.

Some truck models have a history of causing further injuries to their occupants in rollover crashes instead of providing them with protection. For example, roofs crushed occupants, airbags did not deploy, and seatbelts failed to latch and restrain properly.

When a defect in the vehicle contributes to the injuries in a rollover crash, the manufacturer is responsible for those injuries.

An investigation by trained professionals will help determine whether a defect in the vehicle was a contributing factor to the injuries suffered. Manufacturers must be held accountable to ensure that motorists are not subjected to harm due to the production of defective vehicles.

The surviving family deserves answers.
