On the evening of Saturday, October 26th, an SUV filled with sixteen teenagers was involved in a rollover accident
that occurred while the vehicle was traveling around a curve along Muirlands
Vista Way in San Diego. The passengers ranged in ages from 13 to 17. Five
victims were taken to the local hospital for treatment of minor injuries
and a broken leg.
According to reports the teens were on their way home from a party when
the driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle causing it to overturn
and roll onto its roof. A witness to the accident was able to immediately
call for emergency services and help provide care for the injured passengers.
Police officials believe that the number of passengers confirmed to be
in the vehicle at the time of the accident may have directly contributed
to the rollover. No life-threatening injuries were sustained, despite
the fact that the SUV was carrying sixteen passengers, far more than the
maximum capacity of seven people.
Rollover accidents can cause serious injuries, including lacerations, broken bones, head
and neck trauma, spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries and more.
Rollover accidents can result from single-vehicle accidents as well as
be caused by collisions between two or more vehicles. The type of vehicle,
its weight, the number of passengers, speed, road conditions, and weather
can all have a direct impact on the severity of the rollover accident
and the resulting injuries.
