Rollover Crashes in Iowa
In a rollover, the danger of suffering a serious injury is extremely high, and these types of collisions are over-represented in national highway deaths. Rollovers were involved in nearly 35 percent of traffic deaths in 2010, although accounting for less than 2% of reported crashes that year. An estimated 7,600 persons were killed in rollover crashes, with unrestrained individuals accounting for 69% of fatalities. In most cases, rollover crashes are attributable to the reckless actions of distracted motorists or inclement roadway conditions.
