This Is What Happens When A Car Crashes Into The Side Of A Semi Truck
May 17th, 2017
Crashing into a semi truck can be absolutely devastating. Many cars when they crash into either the back or sides of a semi truck, go completely underneath it! Modern semi's have some level of protective equipment in the rear of the truck to prevent cars from going underneath in the event of a rear collision. In the case of side crashes, there are products that do help in the event of an accident.
When a car crashes into the side of a semi truck without effective protective equipment attached to the semi, the results are terrible as you can tell from the video. Some companies have created side collision deflectors that completely protect not only the semi truck but most importantly, the car and its passengers during a side collision.
Products like AngelWing used in this video appears to significantly reduce the damage done during a side collision. In the future, many companies hope to equip semi trucks with highly efficient rear and side guards to prevent underride crash severity. What do you think about these crash tests?
