7 November 2004Year 7 Risks on the Road Crash Testing On the real Crash Testing Grounds engineers and technical experts do just what it sounds like: they crash cars. New cars, old cars, expensive cars, sports cars, trucks, vans just about every kind of motor vehicle imaginable.They also experiment with different types of crashes: front-end, rear-end and side, plus incidents where cars and trucks roll over. During a crash, the car crashes to a stop. At 30 mph, a car hitting an object that is not moving will crumple in about two feet. As the car crushes, it absorbs some of the force of the collision.

8 November 2004Year 7 Risks on the Road WHAT HAPPENS IN A CAR CRASH? Have you ever wondered what happens inside a car when it crashes? The people at the Crash Test Lab do. They spend hour after hour measuring, testing and analyzing. They've found that in each car crash there are actually three collisions: 1. The Car's Collision 2. The Human Collision 3. The Human Body's Collision

9 November 2004Year 7 Risks on the Road THE CAR COLLISION During a crash, the car crashes to a stop. At 30 mph, a car hitting an object that is not moving will crumple in about two feet. As the car crushes, it absorbs some of the force of the collision.

10 November 2004Year 7 Risks on the Road THE HUMAN COLLISION The second collision is the "human collision". At the moment of impact, passengers in the car are still traveling at the vehicles original speed. When the car comes to a complete stop the passengers continue to be hurled forward until they come in contact with some part of the car. For example, the steering wheel, the dashboard, the front window or back of the front seat. Humans in a crash can also cause serious injuries to other humans when they collide with each other. People in the front seat of a car are often hit by rear- seat passengers as they fly forward with incredible force.

11 November 2004Year 7 Risks on the Road THE INTERNAL COLLISION In a crash, even after a human body comes to a complete stop, its internal organs are still moving. Suddenly, these internal organs slam into other organs or the skeletal system. This "internal collision" is what often causes serious injury or death. Imagine what happens when someone's head collides with the windshield of a car. After the person stops moving the brain hits the inside of the skull. The result may be only a mild concussion or there could be permanent brain damage.
