SANTA MONICA—A Santa Monica Police Department SUV flipped over after a collision with another police cruiser on Thursday, March 19.
The crash transpired on the 1900 block of Lincoln Boulevard at about 3:05 p.m. It is still unclear what caused the collision or if there were any reported injuries.

According to consumerreports.org, car rollovers occur in only about 3 percent of all serious crashes, but they account for 30 percent of people killed while riding in a passenger vehicle. Given the right circumstances any vehicle can flip, but SUVs and pickup trucks are more susceptible.
