The damages of the automobile and the injury of dweller are in quite dangerous in these type collisions. Though, the damage is based on the part that was collided. The passenger of the side where the car was struck is usually injured worse than those who were sitting at the front or rear.

The vehicle rollover happens when a car flicks over its top or side. Rollovers are the result of sharp or speedy turns. Every car is at risk of a rollover collision, however sports utility cars are at the higher risks just because they are typically bigger than other cars, and consist of a greater center of gravity. Also, the high-speed racing increases the level of risk and car rollover.

If a car catches fire it can be spilled easily to other cars or the area around due to the fuel. The risk of injury to the passengers is high due to the multiple hits.
