Rollover accident is considered as the most dangerous type of traffic accident for truck, minivan, and SUV occupants. Statistics released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed that over 10,000 people die every year because of it.
A recent rollover accident in Phoenix claimed the life of a woman identified as Patricia John, 42, from Buckeye. According to an AP report, she was the driver of a pickup truck which overturned on Interstate 10, near Buckeye.
Reports said three of her passengers were also injured in the accident. Her 31-year-old male passenger was ejected from the vehicle, causing him to sustain serious injuries.
Meanwhile, a 5-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl, both residents in California, were rushed to a hospital with injuries which were described to be non-life threatening.
