This report analyses data from police reports on crashes, and from an in-depth study of rural crashes, to examine the characteristics of rollover crashes in South Australia. The risk of a single vehicle rollover crash increases markedly at higher travelling speeds and eighty per cent of these crashes in the in-depth study were initiated by the car running at least partially onto the left unsealed shoulder. Road-related countermeasures such as audio-tactile edge lining and sealed shoulders are… 
Factors affecting injury severity of single-vehicle rollover crashes in the United States
TLDR
Several proven countermeasures may prevent rollovers or reduce injury severity in single-vehicle crashes where a rollover occurs, including increasing seatbelt use, posting lower speed limits and installing speed enforcement cameras in high-risk areas, flattening roadside embankments, and promoting in-Vehicle stability enhancement systems.
Using Logistic Regression to Identify Risk Factors Causing Rollover Collisions
Rollover collisions are among the most serious collisions that usually result in severe injuries or fatalities. In 2009, there were 8,732 fatal rollover collisions in the United States of America

Risk of fatal rollover in utility vehicles relative to static stability.
The risk of fatal rollover of utility vehicles per 100,000 registered vehicles relative to cars during 1982-87 was strongly correlated to the static stability of the vehicles. Distance between the
