           Ford Ranger Truck Roof Crush & Roof Failure

      Ford Ranger is a popular line of smaller more compact pickups first introduced in 1982. Ranger was the name given to the Ford F-Series truck from 1965->1981. Sadly the Ranger truck rollovers  occur daily often resulting in roof crush / collapse from the moderate weight of this truck. The thin metal used in these roof pillars can lead to catastrophic failure in a rollover. Drivers of Ford Ranger like the bigger and heavier F-150's and F250 Super Duty and F-350 trucks when faced with a sudden emergency may tend to over-steering or over correct resulting in lose of control of the truck. These sudden emergencies can be from dodging a road hazard, a deer, a dog or another oncoming vehicle into their lane or from the sudden loss of air in a tire, blowout or tire tread failure.

Injuries from a rollover type of roof crush are usually severe and often fatal. When the roof crushes the occupant's head and spinal cord are the first to be impacted and loaded resulting in closed head injuries, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, suffocation, amputations & deaths. 

Roof crush failures can be mild to severe. There are four main types of roof crush deformations patterns:
