The high and narrow build of passenger vans can make them top-heavy and more likely to tip or rollover, especially when the driver is not experienced at driving these types of vehicles. Although the space and room inside these vehicles make them seem like a great family option, there are dangers involved with driving them. They handle differently and when loaded to capacity, can be at a higher risk to drive.
A woman with six children in her mini-van recently rolled twice on an Illinois highway. The woman was momentarily distracted and hit the edge of the road and tried to correct the vehicle. The quick movement caused the van to flip and roll twice into the ditch. All seven passengers were taken to the hospital. Luckily, the woman and six children all survived and did not sustain any life-threatening injuries.
