Injuries Occur in Two-Vehicle Rollover Collision in Arden-Arcade

Two-Vehicle Rollover Collision Reported on Watt Avenue

A two-vehicle rollover collision on December 28 in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento County caused the hospitalization of one person. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that two others were injured in the rollover crash as well. The accident occurred when a man in his 40s was going north along Watt Avenue in a Chevrolet, and a Toyota Camry, occupied by two males in their 20s, was going south. 

Three People Injured in Two-Vehicle Rollover Collision

The driver of the Chevrolet tried to make a U-turn at Adams Road. The Toyota struck his vehicle broadside, causing the Chevy to roll over and resulting in significant injuries to the driver. Both men riding in the Toyota were transported to a hospital with injuries as well. Authorities suspect neither alcohol nor drugs as contributing to the accident. An examination of the accident by CHP traffic crash investigators is underway.

What You Need to Know About Rollover Crashes

A two-vehicle rollover collision poses many challenges and dangers. A rollover is more likely to result in catastrophic injuries in accidents involving two or more cars. A vehicle can roll over for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Steering or braking suddenly to avoid colliding with another vehicle
  • Driving negligently, such as being distracted, impaired, or speeding, can lead to a loss of control
  • Rear-end collisions and side impacts that cause another vehicle to spin
  • Taking a sharp turn while overloaded, causing the vehicle to tip over
  • A vehicle colliding with a guard rail or the center divider due to being clipped by another vehicle

An Injury Lawyer Can investigate Rollover Crashes

Holding an at-fault driver accountable for their actions when causing a two-vehicle rollover collision is possible. An experienced lawyer who knows how to handle these cases can assess your legal options and protect your rights if you have been involved in a car accident. The lawyers will also work hard to see that settlements and awards adequately compensate all damages.

Injuries Caused by Roof Collapse Can Be Significant

There is an additional danger of roof crush during a rollover accident. A rollover-resistant roof and supports are a legal requirement for auto manufacturers. Sadly, some don’t. When a vehicle rolls over, it should be retained for roof inspection. An auto product liability lawsuit may be possible if it happened.
