November Tips of the Month: What Happens in a Motor Vehicle Crash?

In every crash there are 3 collisions which occur at the same rate of speed the vehicle is traveling at.

  • The first collision takes place when the car strikes another object.

  • The second collision, or "human collision", occurs when the occupant of the car is thrown against the interior of the car or another occupant is thrown from the vehicle.

  • The third collision occurs when the internal organs crash into each other or into the wall of the body. For example, when you are in an automobile crash at 35 mph your brain actually collides with your skull at 35 mph. Other internal organs that can be injured include ribs, spleen, liver, and lungs.
