According to the NHTSA, rollover crashes are more likely to result in fatalities than any other types of crashes, and that most fatal rollover crashes are single-vehicle crashes. This type of crash is ultimately due to excessive speeding, alcohol, and other negligent acts the driver may be at fault for. For the case above, the investigation will reveal why exactly the driver of the SUV drove through a park and struck a tree.
