Side Impact Collisions




A side impact collision occurs when the front of an oncoming vehicle strikes the side of your vehicle. This is also known as being t-boned. Most of these incidents occur at intersections as the result of a failure to yield at a stop sign or red light.


The seriousness of side impact collisions depends on several factors, including the speed and weight of the oncoming vehicle, and where that oncoming vehicle collides with yours.

Fatalities due to side impact collisions can be reduced when a vehicle is equipped with side airbags. It is important to understand that children under the age of 12 should not ride in the front seat. The power with which an airbag deploys can cause death to a child, regardless of the severity of the impact.
