Collisions: The Internal Crash
- The third collision often causes serious or fatal injuries.
- Although an occupant’s body eventually comes to a complete stop, the internal organs still move forward.
- These organs smash against other organs or bones.
- If you travel at 60 mph and hit a wall, the force of impact will be four times greater than if you hit the wall at 30 mph.
- You have a much better chance of survival if your seat belt is fastened!
