Woman Dies in Crash on Highway 14 Close to Campobello, South Carolina (SC)

October 21, 2020

CAMPOBELLO, SC- writes that a woman is dead following the traffic accident in Greenville County, South Carolina, this week.*

The incident took place on South Carolina Highway 14 and Pink Dill Mill Road in the evening. It appears that the victim was in a vehicle that overturned. The car was described as a Toyota, and the coroner's office identified the victim as a 50-year-old woman from Greer. It appears that the woman was ejected from her vehicle and died at the scene of the crash.

Rollover collisions are a common problem, especially for taller vehicles such as SUVs, pickup trucks, and vans. These vehicles are more top-heavy and therefore create a greater risk of rollover crashes. One of the issues that make rollover crashes so deadly is the fact that vehicle occupants are often thrown from the car as a vehicle overturns. The chances of surviving a vehicle ejection are slim. Statistics indicate about three out of every four people thrown from a moving car die because of their injuries. 

Seatbelts are the best defense against being ejected in a rollover crash. It is important to take steps to avoid vehicle ejections, and rollover crashes, given the high risks of injuries related to these severe traffic accidents. According to data, only three percent of crashes involve a vehicle overturning, and yet, these collisions lead to approximately 30 percent of all vehicle fatalities. 

Drivers traveling in newer models of SUVs face a lower risk of overturning in a crash as compared to drivers using older models of these same vehicles. Manufacturers have taken steps to address the risks of rollover crashes, and newer SUVs now present less danger than do the SUVs from just a few years ago. It is also wise to avoid overloading a vehicle with cargo, as this can lead to less stability by increasing the top-heaviness of the car.
