Teresa Lynn Cramer, 46, was killed in a Los Angeles car accident when her Chevrolet Suburban went out of control, rolled over and crashed. According to a City News Service report, the fatal rollover accident occurred on the eastbound 60 Freeway in Montebello the morning of June 1, 2011. Cramer was travelling in her SUV when it veered out of control, overturned, struck a light pole and ejected her. Officials are investigating the cause of this fatal crash.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Teresa Lynn Cramer following this tragic rollover accident. My thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
Car Accident Statistics

What Caused This Fatal Crash?
Based on this news report, it is not quite clear what caused Cramer to lose control of her Chevy Suburban. There are several questions here. Was there an auto defect or mechanical malfunction in the SUV that caused it to go out of control? Was this accident caused by driver error or negligence? Did a design defect in the Suburban cause it to tip over or roll over? Was Cramer ejected because of a defective seatbelt? Was there a dangerous condition on the roadway that might have caused this crash? Were any other vehicles involved? I trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
If this fatal rollover accident was caused by an auto defect or defective design, the auto maker can be held liable for the victim’s wrongful death. In such cases, it is a good idea to preserve the vehicle in its current state, unaltered, so it can be examined carefully by an expert for product defects, design flaws, malfunctions and other evidence. An experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will be able to advise victims’ families in such cases about their legal rights and options.
