What are Rollaway Car Crashes?

This can happen from parking brake failure, vehicle shifting into gear or an unattended child in the vehicle. These crashes can be prevented by vehicle safeguards, including brake-shift interlock. Every car does not include a brake-shift interlock, despite, the minimal cost.
Is there Anyone To Blame?
A rollaway car crash may be caused by a design or manufacturing defect in the vehicle. If there was a safer alternative design, then the manufacturer can be held liable.
