As far as single-vehicle crashes go, rollover crashes are some of the worst. While rollover crashes account for only three percent of serious crashes, rollover crashes account for 33 percent of auto accident fatalities. While larger vehicles such as pickup trucks, SUVs and vans are notorious for their tendency to roll over, any vehicle is at risk of a rollover crash — even compact cars and sedans.
When it comes to rollover crash safety, not all cars are created equal. Whether you’re driving down to St. George, Utah or just across town for a meeting with your lawyer, you should know which vehicles are safest in the event of a rollover crash — and which ones are most dangerous.
