Woman Injured in Jeep Rollover Crash
A driver suffered minor injuries in a Jeep rollover crash in Victorville Wednesday. According to the Victorville Sheriff’s Station, a woman driving a Jeep Cherokee east on Jasmine Street lost control after making a U-turn. Her vehicle then overturned after striking the curb and a light pole.
The Jeep was on its roof when authorities arrived. They transported the woman to the hospital for minor injuries.
Witnesses apparently heard the crash nearly a block away from the crash site. The impact actually sheared the light pole, and Southern California Edison was called to repair it. Police are investigating the cause of the Jeep rollover crash.
What Causes Rollover Crashes?
Rollover crashes are some of the most dangerous accidents. In fact, they account for about 35% of all deaths from passenger vehicle crashes. Rollover crashes can occur for numerous reasons, but a large majority are single-vehicle crashes. Because the crashes usually involve only one vehicle, driver behavior is often to blame. Check out the 5 factors that lead to rollover crashes, and make sure you avoid the common precipitating behaviors.
“We’re glad the driver is going to be okay, considering how deadly rollover crashes can be,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
