Side Collisions Have the Highest Cases of Sustained Injuries

Many types of accidents happen on roads. Some of the most common types of accidents are head-on collisions, side or T-bone collisions, rear-end collisions and rollover collisions. But, according to an article on, among all the most common types of accidents, side collisions have more serious consequences. The article explains how such type of collisions can result in a high number of severe to serious injuries.

A side collision is also called a side impact car crash, T-bone accident and broadside collusions. It is stated in the article that researches at Monash University Accident Research Centre in Melbourne. The type of accident with devastating effects is known to cause 8,000 to 10,000 fatalities each year, which is higher than the total number of fatalities from head-on collisions and rear-end collisions. In addition, occupants in a car moving at a driving speed as low as (30 km/h) are still likely to suffer serious injuries because of a side collision.

Modern vehicles protect car occupants in a front-end collision or rear-end collision with bumpers, airbags and seatbelts. However, there are no safety features in cars that protect occupants in a side collision accident, except side curtain airbags installed in some cars .
