A car doesn't cause an accident, a person does - just like guns don't kill people, the user does.

Why are SUV's deadly? I have one and drive carefully, don't speed and have full control of it at all times. I don't drive carelessly. You have to know your vehicle to stay safe. Unless her tires were the old recalled Firestone or something was mechanically wrong with her car, she caused herself to crash.

According to the article, this is what was said. How is this the car's fault?

"Catherine A. Sivilli, 52, WAS NOT wearing her seat belt, Pima County Sheriff’s spokesperson Dawn Hanke said, when the incident occurred at 8:52 p.m. The single-vehicle accident was at Camino De Oeste and Crestview Circle, north of Speedway Boulevard on the west side of Interstate 10.

Sivilli was westbound on Camino De Oeste when she left the roadway, apparently overcorrecting and causing the vehicle to roll, Hanke said."

I don't know about you, but seat belt law says to wear them and she wasn't. She overcorrected and everyone who drives an SUV is told not to overcorrect to get back on the road. Even a Lincoln Continental can roll if you overcorrect.

One has to wonder how many cocktails or glasses of wine she had at dinner with her friend?

I'm sorry about your loss, but she caused it, not the SUV. Don't blame inanimate objects for driver fault. The car can't drive itself.

Damn, Jim I forgot! Guns kill people by themselves, hot coffee opens up and spills on laps by themselves, cell phones just talk and talk and put themselves to our ears when we're driving, the makeup forces us to put it on in the rear view mirror, the comb or brush jumps up and of course, the booze, oh that booze, it really makes us drunk and then tells us to drive! Imagine that!

The only thing a car can do is sit there til WE turn the key. SUV's are no more dangerous than convertables or Jeeps or Station Wagons.

A gun sits there til we pick it up and pull the trigger.

A cigarette sits there til we light up and inhale

A bottle of liquor sits on the shelf til we open it and drink it.

Anymore things that can be blamed on inanimate objects anyone?
