Side Collisions are more likely to be fatal than front or rear end accidents of similar force. This is because the side of the vehicle is usually far less protected than the front or rear and there is less protecting the people inside. Although side air bags can help, they offer little help in a serious broadside crash. This type of crash is usually caused by one car not yielding the right of way, resulting in a bad crash.
Side-impact car accidents are ones where the side of one or more vehicles is hit. These kinds of car collisions often occur at intersections, in parking lots, or when a vehicle changes lanes on a multi-lane roadway. Two common types of side-impact collisions are:
Sideswipe side-impact and broadside or t-bone collisions occur when the side of one vehicle strikes the side of another vehicle. These types of collisions frequently occur on roads or in parking lots. Injuries in side-impact collisions can be more severe than other types of accidents because vehicle air bags and “crumple zones” are designed for front and rear-end collisions. Side-impact collisions are the second most dangerous form of collision, following only head-on collisions. About 8,500 deaths a year are caused by side-impact collisions.
