1 killed, 1 injured in SUV rollover in Austin

As big as some sport utility vehicles are it doesn't necessarily take much for them to tip and begin to roll over. We see a lot of such accidents in Texas. Serious injuries are common and sometimes result in someone dying.

If negligence of a particular party can be shown to have been a significant cause of a rollover crash, the right to seek compensation may exist for those who are injured or those who have lost a loved one. It's important to speak with an experienced attorney in such circumstances.

One accident this past weekend is what sparks us to write about this issue.

It happened in Northeast Austin at around 6 p.m. Sunday. Officials say a Ford Expedition was driving on the service road for U.S. 290. Witnesses indicate that the vehicle might have been speeding.

Authorities say the large SUV came up on another vehicle and in order to avoid hitting it, swerved suddenly. The Expedition didn't hit the other vehicle, but it struck a curb and that's what started it rolling.

It's not clear how many times it rolled, but officials say two passengers from the SUV were ejected as it went. One of them died at the scene and the other was seriously injured.

The 39-year-old driver apparently escaped unhurt. Police say they have arrested the man and at the time of this posting, charges are said to be pending. They say the two victims apparently were not wearing seat belts. Their identities were not included in the report that contributed to this post.
