Many rollover crashes occur on interstates and expressways but they can happen anywhere and at almost any speed. It’s easy to find reports of vehicles rolling over at low speeds. It all depends on road conditions, the angle or pitch of the road and if the vehicle is tripped by a curb, road anomaly, or in this case, a ditch.
