CLINICAL CASE REVIEWS OF LIGHT TRUCK AND VAN CRASHES

This paper reviews some clinical case studies taken from field investigations conducted by the authors of actual crashes involving light trucks and vans. An attempt is made to indicate where Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards might possibly be applicable and to compare cases where vehicle design changes apparently reduced the severity of injuries. In particular, cases are shown where occupants were restrained and where steering column energy absorbing and rearward displacement systems have been installed.
