Two People Seriously Injured in Phoenix Rollover Accident
SUV's have been some of the top-selling vehicles in the United States in recent years, and that's largely because they purport to offer consumers the best of both worlds - the comfortable ride of a sedan with the safety and rugged performance capabilities of a truck. Unfortunately, SUV's have shown a tendency to roll over at rates much higher than other types of vehicles. While it's too early to know if it was driver error or a problem with the structure of the vehicle, what is known is that two people were seriously injured in a Phoenix SUV rollover accident last night. Police are still investigating the incident.
According to authorities, this Phoenix SUV rollover crash occurred last night near the intersection of near 35th Avenue and Dobbins Road. Five people in total were inside the vehicle when it rolled over, and two unidentified passengers who were only described as a man and a woman were ejected from it when it rolled over and seriously injured. Of the five people inside the vehicle, three of them were 18 years old. One person had to be forcefully extricated from the vehicle by rescue workers, and no updates were given on their conditions.
