SIDE IMPACTS: AN ANALYSIS OF LIGHT TRUCKS, INTRUSION, AND INJURY IN FARS (FATAL ACCIDENT REPORTING SYSTEM) AND NCSS (NATIONAL CRASH SEVERITY STUDY) DATA

This report complements an earlier report which was devoted to the subject of side impacts of passenger cars. In this report, side impacts of light trucks are studied with respect to where, how, and why they occur using the data of the Fatal Accident Reporting System (FARS), and the National Crash Severity Study (NCSS). Data from the second phase of the NCSS program is also used to study side-impact injury and their relation to intrusion in both passenger cars and light trucks.
