On the early morning of Wednesday, March 24th, a rollover accident left a person with critical, life-threatening injuries near the North Travis County area.
Details About the Car Accident
According to local authorities, the rollover accident occurred at around 2:54 a.m. on the intersection of East Wells Branch Parkway and Dessau Road. The victim was reportedly ejected from their vehicle and pinned underneath after rolling over.
The Austin Travis-County EMS responded to the accident shortly afterward and were able to free the patient. However, the patient was unconscious, and a trauma alert was declared.
The patient was airlifted to the nearest hospital, and the intersection remained closed until further notice.
The Majority of Rollovers are Single-Vehicle Accidents
This unfortunate accident was considered a single-vehicle accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that around 85% of rollover accidents only involve one vehicle, and the latest data provided by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) states that a total number of 19,257 fatal single-vehicle accidents had occurred across the U.S. in 2019.
Keep in mind, this doesn’t necessarily paint an accurate portrait of just how many rollover accidents occur in a year. One thing’s for certain, however, that single-vehicle accidents were responsible for approximately 53% of all fatal road accidents across the U.S. In Texas, a total number of 1,788 single-vehicle fatalities were recorded as well, accounting for approximately 49% of the state’s fatal car accidents that same year.
