Two Vehicles in Fatal Rollover Crash in Tucson

By Breyer Law Offices on July 20, 2018

There are many causes for rollover crashes, and rollovers can be serious, even deadly. On July 6, 2018, two cars were involved in a fatal crash on Interstate 10 at Kolb Road in Tucson. The accident occurred mid-afternoon. At least one fatality was reported, but we are waiting for the official police report. The road was closed after the crash, causing other drivers to wait for several hours or turn through the median to go back the other way.

At least two SUVs were involved in the crash, with multiple semi-trucks in the area as well. One car rolled over into the median and was extremely damaged. The drop off the side of the highway was a few inches, and the median sloped down into a shallow ditch filled with a lot of brush and trees. The car with the most damage rolled to a stop just on the shoulder, near the median. There is no report yet about what caused the crash, but similar rollover crashes that we have seen were caused by:

• Sideswipe collisions that result in loss of control
• Abrupt lane changes or braking
• Swerving to avoid another driver
• Tire blowouts
• Drowsy or drunk drivers
• Distracted drivers

Typically, rollover crashes result in serious injuries and expensive vehicle repair costs. Victims can suffer broken bones, spine and brain injuries, compression injuries, and more. They often need to be extracted from the vehicle with the Jaws of Life because of the extreme damage to the car and doors.

The medical and repair bills that victims face can be devastating and put families in deep financial trouble, even if they have insurance. Victims can get help with these bills by filing a claim against the person responsible for the crash and asking their insurance company to cover the claim.
