The most frequent reason why a vehicle rolls over is due to a term called: “tripping”. It accounts for 95% of all single-car rollover collisions. This happens when the tires of a vehicle hits either a curb, a bump, or a soft shoulder, leading to an interruption in the vehicles velocity, which makes it rollover to its roof or side. Here are some other everyday causes for rollover accidents:
Elevated center of gravities: 4-wheel drive vehicle like SUV’s, minivans, and trucks, are more likely to rollover because they have a more concentrated center of gravity than a compact car.
Hazards on the road or poor design: Potholes, fallen objects, lack of signs, and just overall substandard road maintenance can be a source to vehicles flipping over.
