According to IIHS, the major cause of rollover accidents is because of loss of control of the SUV or pickup truck and collision with curbs, tree stumps or guardrails. Uneven ground can also be a cause of rollover. When turns are taken too tightly or safe speeds are not maintained, that too can cause rollovers to occur.
