In an accident, a car may roll over due to the sideways forces being placed on it. For instance, if a driver makes a sudden movement and then tries to correct back quickly, the lateral force acts like a pendulum that makes the car roll. Most often, cars with higher centers of gravity such as SUVs and large trucks are susceptible to rollovers.
