Side Impact Collisions: Overview
Side-impact accidents often occur between vehicles that are traveling at high speeds. The momentum of such a crash can be overwhelming to the occupants in the car that is struck as well as to the occupants of the car that strikes. T-bone collisions typically happen when a vehicle traveling through an intersection fails to stop or yield appropriately. These are often the most severe types of car accidents, often leading to:
- Catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), amputations, crush injuries, broken bones and spinal cord injuries
- Fatalities, sometimes resulting from occupants being thrown far from the vehicles
T-bone accidents, where one vehicle strikes the driver’s side or the passengers’ side of another vehicle, offer occupants little chance of escape in many cases. Some car models are equipped with side air bags, but even this level of protection can be insufficient to counteract the strong force of a full-speed T-bone accident at a traffic light or stop sign intersection. This is especially true when the offending vehicle is a truck or SUV.
