U.S. 33 rollover draws attention to deadly vehicle fires

Authorities are investigating a crash that shut down part of U.S. 33 in Fairfield County earlier this week.

At approximately 3 p.m. Monday, a pickup truck rolled over and caught fire. Emergency responders closed I-33 East and part of I-33 West while they put out the fire and cleared wreckage.

Amazingly, nobody was injured.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) there are nearly 300,000 vehicle fires each year, killing an average of 480 people and injuring 1,525.

The causes of vehicle fires include:

  • Mechanical failure or malfunction (49 percent)
  • Electrical failure or malfunction (23 percent)
  • Collision or rollover (3 percent)

While collisions or rollovers only account for 3 percent of all vehicle fires, they account for a remarkable 58 percent of vehicle-fire fatalities.
