This instead caused him roll his vehicle. Michael Joseph Plassmeyer was charged with several outstanding warrants, including on sexual assault, felony menacing, vehicular eluding and assault “to name a few,” according to a police report. An officer reported seeing a white station wagon run a couple red lights at the Garden of the Gods Road and I-25. The officer attempted to pursue the station wagon when the car fled onto I-25. Plassmeyer was headed south on the northbound lanes of I-25.

Car accidents are a very common occurrence. It is something most drivers pass at least once a month. It is also just as common to be involved in a car accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there are over 5 million passenger vehicle accidents a year. Of those 1 million accidents over 20,000 result in fatalities. Rollover accidents occur more frequently with large trucks or light trucks than any other vehicle type. However, it is important to understand a rollover accident can happen to anyone for a number of reasons. A roll-over accident is deemed a rollover if the vehicle performs any of the following: a complete rollover, rolling onto its side, roof, far side and finally ending up on its wheels again, or even going on to roll further. There are a few types of rollovers. A tripping rollover is when a vehicle is sliding sideways, and the tires strike a curb, dig into soft ground, suddenly causing a sudden lateral force that causes the car to tilt on its side. Depending on your speed a car can roll completely over or just land on its side. Speed is a big reason for most rollover instances. It is never a good idea to try and flee from a officer. More often than not they will catch you and you will be facing more charges.
