One driver died following a single-vehicle crash in Champaign County. The rollover crash in Champaign County occurred on Sunday morning, August 29th. The accident report indicates that loss of control led to the occurrence.
According to the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office, the preliminary investigation revealed that a pickup truck traveled southbound on S.R. 560. The vehicle was north of Old Troy Pike when it left the roadway. The car traveled back to the road, lost control, and drove off the west side of the highway into the 2200 block.
The vehicle then struck a ditch, rolled, and rested. Unfortunately, the driver died at the accident scene. The sheriff’s office will release the victim’s name after notification of the next-of-kin. The crash remains under investigation, with the sheriff’s office and the Champaign County Coroner’s Office collaborating.
Single car accidents are one of the most common types of motor vehicle crashes. A solo car crash can happen for several reasons: drunk driving, taking turns quickly, distracted driving, animal sighting, adverse weather, or mechanical defect. In this accident type, the surviving driver would cover their injury treatment and vehicle repairs alone.
Drivers in single-vehicle accidents cannot sue for compensation unless evidence points to third parties contributing to the crash. An example is when a design defect or mechanical error caused the accident or adverse road conditions. In either of the two cases, the driver can bring a claim against the vehicle manufacturer, auto mechanic, or the government body responsible for maintaining the road.
