In the United States and throughout much of the world, motor vehicle accidents continue to be a leading cause of serious injury and death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), at least 38,000 people were killed in motor vehicle collisions in the United States in 2019, a rate of almost 12 deaths per 100,000 population. Medically consulted injuries, defined as injuries that required the consultation of a medical professional, from motor vehicle incidents totaled 4.5 million in 2019, and total motor vehicle injury costs were estimated at $463 billion.

Rollover crashes, which are particularly violent in nature, represent a significant and growing contributor to the annual number of serious injuries and fatalities from motor vehicle crashes. The changing composition in the fleet of vehicles on the nation’s highways has resulted in a growing number of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and other light trucks relative to passenger cars. Studies have shown that light trucks in general, and SUVs in particular, are an increasing segment of the total number of fatal rollover crashes.

According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), rollover crashes constitute about 20% of all fatal motor vehicle crashes. In fact, rollovers are more likely to result in fatalities than other types of crashes. The proportion of fatalities that are attributable to rollovers is highest among light trucks (47%) which is more than two times higher as compared to passenger car occupant fatalities (22%). Studies have also found that the likelihood of serious and fatal injuries in rollover crashes increases with a variety of factors including partial or complete ejection of the occupant, no seat belt use, speeding, undulating terrain, and rural roads.
