Q
Why is a side-impact collision is more likely to be fatal than a front end-collision or rear-end collision at the same speed?

A

Until recently, technology has focused on reducing driver deaths from front-end and rear-end collisions. Air bags, bumpers and car design have dramatically reduced the amount of deaths especially from front-end crashes.  In the meantime, the percentage of driver deaths from side-impact collisions has gone up. Side impact crashes account for 20.7 percent of all fatal crashes and 32.2 percent of injury crashes. Side airbags can help - to a limited extent.
