Rollover car accidents are highly publicized in the Phoenix area and they often receive more attention in the media than other forms of collisions. The reasons for this vary but in general, the severity of a rollover crash is high and the risk for injuries significant, garnering the increased attention and highlighting the dangers posed by these accidents. Further, rollover crashes are less common than some other types of accidents like rear-end collisions and therefore their more unique position among vehicular crashes leads to their publicity.
The causes of rollover accidents can be complicated to discern as multiple factors may be involved. In many cases, an initial impact with another vehicle or a fixed object leads a car to roll over but in others, there is no initial contact and the rollover happens for other reasons, including speed, design of a road, or even a blown tire. The cause of the rollover may determine who is legally liable for the damages suffered by a victim but will not determine whether that victim is entitled to relief. The laws in Phoenix guarantee the right to seek a recovery by a victim when that victim is harmed by another’s actions, regardless of who that other person is. If you have questions or if you are looking for answers following a Phoenix rollover car accident, you may get the help you need by speaking with a personal injury attorney.
Early this morning, a one car rollover accident occurred on the southbound Loop 101 near Chaparrel Road in Scottsdale. Emergency crews responded to the scene and evaluated at least one person inside the car that was involved in the crash but unfortunately, that person’s injuries were too severe and that victim died as a result of the crash.
The collision forced authorities to close the southbound Loop 101 to Indian School Road as crews worked to clear the debris and return the highway to its normal condition. The incident happened in the early hours of the morning and all lanes were reopened prior to 5:00 a.m.
No conclusions about the cause of the accident have been released at this time nor has information regarding the victim who lost his or her life but police state that an investigation is ongoing into this matter.
