The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has found that rollovers are a rare occurrence, but one of the deadliest types of motor vehicle crashes. Among the 9.1 million passenger vehicles crashes that occurred in 2010, only 2.1% of these accidents involved rollovers. While rollovers represent a small number of accidents, these crashes represent approximately 35% of all fatalities from passenger vehicle crashes.
