Missouri Woman Seriously Injured in Rollover Car Accident
An Elkland, Missouri, woman sustained serious injuries in a car accident, according to the Marshfield Mail. The car crash occurred on Highway 38 three miles north of Elkland when an eastbound 2006 Saturn Ion driven by the 37-year-old woman went off the right side of the roadway. According to Missouri Highway Patrol officials, the woman then overcorrected causing the Saturn to then travel off the left side of the roadway and roll over. Officials also say that the woman was not wearing her seatbelt and that she was ejected from the vehicle. She suffered major injuries and was transported to a hospital in nearby Springfield, Missouri.
Rollover car accidents can result in extremely serious personal injury or even death because of the intensity and violence of the crash. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover accidents cause about 10,000 traffic accident fatalities each year in the United States. That's about one-fourth of all traffic accident fatalities in the country, according to these statistics. People injured in rollover accidents also tend to suffer debilitating injury such as brain injuries and spinal cord injuries due to roof crush or seatbelt failure.
