Rollover crashes remain one of the most deadliest of collisions. One of the reasons they remain so deadly is due to roof crushing that occurs after the rollover.
In some cases, the fatality occurs when the roof of the vehicle hits the ground, crushes inward toward the vehicle occupants and strikes them. The other scenario that occurs with roof crushing is the windows, windshields or doors break or open up when the roof hits the ground.. The now deformed shape of a vehicle has wide gaps that can cause the vehicle occupants to be ejected from the vehicle.
