Damages during a Side-Impact Crash
Why are side-impact crashes so serious? The vehicle that is struck in the side is likely to sustain extensive damage. This is often the weak point of the vehicle, particularly in older models that do not have side airbags or added protection for vehicle occupants when the vehicle is struck on the side. The door and window beside the driver or passenger on the side of the vehicle that sustains the force of impact may literally crumple inward on the occupant, causing catastrophic crush injuries. These injuries will be even more severe if a commercial truck, bus or other large and heavy vehicle collides with a smaller vehicle.
