Special Crash Investigations On-Site ET-Plus Guardrail End Treatment Crash Investigation; Vehicle: 1996 Toyota Camry; Location: Missouri; Crash Date: March 2016

This report documents the impact to an ET-Plus guardrail end treatment by a 1996 Toyota Camry. At the time of the crash, the Toyota was operated by a belted 39-year-old male driver and was traveling westbound on a limited access roadway. The crash occurred when the vehicle drifted right from its travel lane and departed the right roadway edge, where its front plane struck the guardrail end treatment. During the crash, the end terminal and guardrail were displaced and deformed. Two kinks formed in the guardrail, and the guardrail penetrated the Toyota’s interior in two locations. Due to a lack of significant injuries, there likely was no direct occupant contact with the guardrail associated with those penetrations. The Toyota rotated counterclockwise and came to rest in the roadside. The male driver exited the Toyota unassisted and was transported to a local hospital, where he was held overnight and released within 24 hours of the crash.
