Many sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are top-heavy. This is part of their design. Because SUVs are top heavy, they are easy to tip over, especially if they are hit from the side. Lack of proper supports in the roof may cause further harm. In some instances when an SUV tips over, the roof will not support the weight of the vehicle. This type of defect is called a “roof crush” accident.
