ALBUQUERQUE — A man and a woman were hospitalized Tuesday afternoon after a multi-car crash on Roma Avenue Northeast.

Man and Woman Hospitalized After Albuquerque Multi-Car CrashPolice and first responders were dispatched around 12:30 p.m. to a crash on Roma Avenue between Truman Street and San Mateo Boulevard. A man driving east on Roma Avenue in a Jeep SUV reportedly had a medical episode before hitting four parked vehicles and rolling over.

Local media reported that the driver and a woman who may have been a passenger in the Jeep were being transported to a nearby hospital for treatment, but were considered to be in stable condition.

A section of Roma Avenue was temporarily closed so that Albuquerque Police could conduct a crash investigation.

“We are glad to hear that the people involved in this crash seem to be stable,” said Brian Colón, managing partner of Singleton Schreiber’s New Mexico practice. “Hopefully their treatment plans are effective and return them to their loved ones quickly.”

“If you or someone you know has been involved in a crash like this, whether as a driver or as the owner of a car that gets hit, it may be in your interest to consult a personal injury attorney. We can help you identify and pursue any legal options available to you, so you can recover the money you need to deal with unexpected expenses like repair costs, medical bills or lost wages.”

Rollover crashes are responsible for nearly 3 in 10 motor vehicle occupant deaths in the U.S.

Rollovers increase the degree of danger in any crash.

A 2014 study dating all the way back to 1984 found that rollover crashes had accounted for just over 2% of all motor vehicle crashes, but 33% of the annual injury cost — with more than half of the harm coming in the form of head, neck and spine injuries.

That said, adjustments to car design and electronic stability controls since 2010 have greatly reduced the risk of rollover in many crash situations. But despite those improvements, more than 7,400 people died in rollover crashes in 2022, according to data analyzed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, accounting for 29% of all motor vehicle occupant deaths.
