Facts About Truck Rollover Accidents
In a rollover accident, a truck literally turns over onto its side or roof. Rollover accidents are divided into two types:
- Tripped rollovers: Accidents where an external force tips over the truck. Hitting another car or a curb are the most common ways these accidents happen.
- Untripped rollovers: Accidents caused by the truck losing contact with the ground because of speed or steering. These accidents are most commonly caused by trucks taking turns too fast.
