Last night, the 101 freeway was brought to a near halt after a roll-over accident in Sherman Oaks, California just north of Los Angeles. The crash involved more than one vehicle, but the driver of the SUV which rolled-over was trapped and had to taken out of the car by emergency crews.

The driver, only identified as a 52-year-old man, was taken to a nearby hospital and was admitted into the intensive care unit and classified as being in critical condition. The California Highway Patrol is continuing its investigation into the crash.

Rollover accidents remain some of the most violent and deadly single car accidents on the roads today. Defective tires and manufacturing are some of the main components and reasons that rollover accidents occur. It is important to speak with an attorney immediately after such an accident because critical evidence must be preserved. Don’t delay, act now.
