Causes of Minnesota rollover accidents

According to a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a number of factors influence the likelihood of a rollover accident. Minnesota drivers should be aware of the various things affecting the chances of being in a rollover, because these types of accidents tend to have a higher fatality rate than any other kind. Driver behaviors are leading contributing factors in this type of crash, but the kind of vehicle involved also plays a role in determining the likelihood of rolling.

Rollovers and how Minnesota residents can avoid them

When a rollover occurs, it is classified as either a tripped or an untripped rollover. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 95 percent of rollovers involving single cars are of the tripped variety. A vehicle may be susceptible to tripping on soft soils or when it is moving on a gravel surface. It may also be possible for a car to trip when it hits a curb or encounters a snowbank.
