Orange County Man Killed in Rollover Accident

The susceptibility of a vehicle to rollover has been continuously talked about due to the danger it brings to all road users. According to statistics, around 280 rollover accidents that cause 10,000 fatal injuries happen in the United States annually.

Another man recently died after the Toyota Camry he was driving was involved in a rollover accident.

Authorities said Alen Nazarian, 37, from Orange County was traveling on the freeway south of the border patrol checkpoint when he lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons.

The Camry then rolled numerous times before coming to a stop along the right shoulder.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police suspect that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Driving cautiously is one of the main ways to avoid being involved in fatal accidents. In addition, drivers should carefully choose which vehicle type they will buy because records show that some vehicle types are more prone to rollovers.
