As discussed on the “DuPage County Vehicle Rollover Accidents” page, while there are many reasons as to why a vehicle may roll over, there are a few common characteristics. Among common characteristics that may increase the probability of a car rollover is excessive speed as well as if the vehicle leaves the roadway. An excerpt from the car rollover page, with regard to the importance of wearing a seat belt:
As with any other type of crash, wearing a seatbelt is one way to reduce the possibility of experiencing serious injury. This is especially so with rollover accidents, as one of the most adverse outcomes is if a occupant is ejected (i.e. thrown) from the vehicle. Often, such ejections lead to serious accident injuries, if not fatalities.
Other safety measures for potentially preventing rollover crash injuries include air bags and other technologies like stability control and ABS systems.
A Lisle fatal SUV accident was summarized in the May 15, 2018 post titled “Fatal SUV Accident On Ogden Avenue In Lisle Involving Two Vehicles.” As seen in that post, this Lisle fatal SUV accident involved one vehicle crossing the center line before it collided with another SUV.

As discussed on the “Injuries Resulting From Various Types Of DuPage County Accidents” page, a broad range of injuries can result depending upon the type of accident. In “head-on collisions” such as this Lisle fatal SUV accident, accident injuries tend to be serious and possibly life-threatening due to the forces involved in frontal collisions that happen at speed. As seen in such collisions that have happened throughout Illinois, such crashes often result in fatalities, with vehicle occupants either passing away at the accident scene or after some time following the crash. Such crash injuries tend to be especially severe if a vehicle occupant is not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, as the unrestrained passenger is vulnerable to be ejected from the vehicle.

Leaving the scene of an accident occurs for various reasons. Often, the driver is intoxicated or otherwise impaired, and doesn’t want to face the consequences associated with driving while impaired. If the accident has caused injuries and/or death, leaving the scene of an accident – often referred to as a “hit & run” – occurs in many instances.
