Women injured after flipping of vehicles

In one of the busiest streets in Philly, a woman sustained injury following a crash that caused her vehicle to flip over.

The victim who remained unidentified was transported to a local hospital after her car slammed into a tree and it flipped along the vicinity of Summerdale and Roosevelt Blvd. in the Philadelphia’s Lawncrest section at around 4:00 o’clock that Sunday morning.

Police said that the crews responded and flipped the car back right-side up. The female operator sustained cuts and bruises to her head that the Ems treated.

The night before, another vehicle flipped onto its side after it smashed through the enclosure of a parking area in Center City Saturday night. Inside the car were four women who sustained injuries after the incident that happened in the city’s Queen Village section.

The vehicle was exiting a parking lot along the Bainbridge and 5th streets before it crash the fence.

After the mishap, the car hit a number of vehicles as well and continued running across the street from the parking area then flipped on its side in the nearby alley. The four women were entrapped inside the vehicle prior to their rescue by responders.

Two of the women are recovering after the car overturned on its side at the Queen Village section of the city.

One of the witnesses, identified as Meredith Difilippo said that she saw the car losing control as it was leaving the parking lot on Bainbridge and 5th streets that Saturday night. It overturned onto its side and finally stopped at a nearby building.

Difilippo was nearby that she was nearly hit by the vehicle and had to jump out of the way. She heard people screaming and saw the car running around 90 MPH after it reversed. The car appeared like a dove as it literally flew.

The women inside the vehicle were briefly trapped inside the vehicle but were immediately extricated by first responders. They were transported to the hospital where they were given treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

Officials are still investigating what caused the driver to lose control.

Why do vehicles flipped during accidents? Every time a car is traveling in a line, and the driver turns the wheel, due to the dynamic inertia, the car continues running in a straight line. According to data, a third of all fatal rollover accidents find teenagers behind the wheels. Teens are often panicky and continue to steer the wheel that over-corrects the vehicle. Even if the speed and mass of the vehicle are adequate, the vehicle car will follow a straight line, no matter which direction the wheels are going. It is the effort to over-correct that causes the car to rollover.
