Car accidents that involve a rollover are far more deadly than non-rollover accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), of the 31,693 people killed in car accidents in 2004 (the last year of data used for the study), 10,553 (one-third) were a rollover-type accident, however, rollover accidents only accounted for 3% of all traffic accidents. When an accident does not involve a rollover, 0.2% of occupants suffer fatal injuries, but when an accident does involve a rollover, 2.7% of occupants are killed.
