Woman Killed in Fatal I-15 Solo-Vehicle Collision
43-year-old Jennifer Sue Shaffer was killed as the result of a rollover collision in Las Vegas.
The crash occurred on the northbound side of the I-15 Freeway as she was entering the Las Vegas Boulevard offramp.
Per reports, Shaffer failed to navigate the curve of the ramp and rode off the roadway.
As a result, the woman was ejected from her Nissan Maxima. Her car also overturned and rolled over upon impact.
She was also not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Sadly, Shaffer died at the scene.
Investigators are working to determine what may have factored into the crash.
JT Legal Group sends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Jennifer Sue Shaffer.
Statistics show that rollover accidents account for about one-third of all fatalities in the U.S. In addition, 30% of vehicle fatalities are rollover crashes. These types of accidents are far more likely to result in a fatality than non-rollover crashes.
In the U.S. one’s odds of dying in a car accident is around 1 in 107.
Always make sure to wear a seatbelt, obey traffic laws, and avoid distractions while driving.
