Rollover Accident Leads to Vehicle Fire in Lexington Park

By Alpert Schreyer on December 26, 2012

A rollover accident in the early morning hours of December 26th led to a vehicle bursting into flames on Hermanville Road in Lexington Park. Despite the severe nature of the crash, however, the only occupant of the vehicle was apparently not injured, according to SMNewsNet.com.

While the cause of the crash is unknown currently, police, firemen, and rescue workers quickly responded to the accident. According to reports, the woman’s Jeep was travelling on Hermanville Road, but suddenly left the roadway and struck a utility pole. This caused the Jeep to roll several times until it stopped on its side and caught fire. However, the woman was able to escape injury and refused treatment at the scene of the accident.

Rollover crashes can cause serious injuries, no matter how many times a vehicle overturns in a crash. Rollovers can cause occupants to be thrashed about the vehicle, hit by flying debris, and even ejected from the car completely if not secured properly. Any of these can lead to serious, even fatal, injuries in a matter of moments. Additionally, vehicle fires can be incredibly dangerous. Occupants may suffer severe burns and smoke inhalation and in extreme circumstances, the gas tank may explode, causing possibly the worst case scenario in a car crash.

While most modern vehicles have employed numerous safety measures to prevent vehicle fires and shield occupants in the event of a rollover, the extreme nature of these crashes can overcome any safety technology currently in use by vehicles.

The Lexington Park rollover crash lawyers at Alpert Schreyer are dedicated to helping crash victims prove fault and find compensation for their losses.
