According to a recent article in the whig.com, a single car rollover crash happened near Louisiana, MO. The driver’s car went off the road before hitting an embankment and overturning.
The car accident in Missouri occurred on 11274 Route B at Pike County Road 107 when the individual was headed east when she apparently overcorrected and lost control of her 2003 Ford Focus, Missouri State Highway Patrol officials said. The woman was wearing her seat belt but suffered serious injuries as her Focus rolled over. She was transported to an area hospital.
In the United States, one of the main causes of fatalities in auto accidents is a rollover crash. Rollover car accidents in Missouri typically cause fatal or catastrophic injuries including brain and spinal cord damage that often require long term care. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that of the approximately 40,000 auto accidents that occur each year, rollover crashes account for 25 percent or 10,000 motor vehicle traffic crashes.
The news report does not provide details of what made the driver in this incident lose control of her vehicle. It is possible that there was a dangerous condition or a hazard on the roadway. It is also possible that the Focus had a preexisting mechanical condition or a product defect that contributed to the accident.
