Complaint - Air Bags, Steering

DRIVING ON A STRAIGHT AWAY AT ABOUT 55 MPH., THE CAR SUDDENLY PULLED TO THE LEFT. THE DRIVER COULD NOT REGAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE, WHICH RESULTED IN A ROLLOVER ACCIDENT. DRIVER AND PASSENGER DID NOT HEAR ANYTHING PRIOR TO THE SUDDEN PULL. THE CAR SPUN AROUND AND HIT THE GRAVEL ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD THEN CONTINUED TO ROLL DOWN THE HILL. AT LEAST 2 ROLLOVERS. AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. I'M CONCERNED THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM WITH SUSPENSION OR COIL SPRINGS SUDDENLY BLOWING OUT A TIRE. I WILL BE CONTACTING A MECHANIC ON MONDAY AND SCHEDULE AN INSPECTION. CAR IS TOTALED. INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER VEHICLE, BUT FORTUNATELY COVERS MEDICAL AND LIABILITY. FORTUNATELY THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER, AT THIS POINT, APPEAR TO HAVE WALKED AWAY RELATIVELY UNHARMED.
