New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.

Aisle Seat-Window Seat
2012 Volkswagen (Passat) CC IIHS Narrow/Small Overlap Frontal Offset (Marginal Rating)
The Volkswagen CC was introduced in the 2009 model year. The car is a
variant of older (2006-10) models of the Volkswagen Passat sedan with a
lower roofline, frameless side windows, and a higher price.
Structure — Maximum intrusion in the driver's footwell area was 24 cm
measured at the lower hinge pillar. Maximum intrusion in the instrument
panel area was 17 cm.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — The dummy's head barely contacted the
frontal airbag before sliding off the left side, leaving the head
vulnerable to contact with forward side structure and resulting in little
airbag cushioning for the chest. This occurred, in part, because the
steering column moved 19 cm to the right as the dummy moved to the left.
Additionally, the seat belt allowed excessive forward excursion of the
dummy's head and torso. Neither the side curtain nor side torso airbags
deployed, leaving the dummy's head and chest vulnerable to contacts with
side structure and outside objects. The driver door hinges were torn off
and the latch opened, resulting in the door detaching from the vehicle,
which shouldn't happen because the driver could be partly or completely
ejected from the vehicle.
Injury measures — Measures from the dummy indicate that injuries to the
left thigh would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of
significant injuries to other body regions is low.
Weak federal standard allows deadly car-into-truck crashes
IIHS news release • March 1, 2011
Underride guards on big rigs often fail in crashes; Institute petitions
government for new standard
ARLINGTON, VA — New crash tests and analysis by the Insurance Institute
for Highway Safety demonstrate that underride guards on tractor-trailers
can fail in relatively low-speed crashes — with deadly consequences. The
Institute is petitioning the federal government to require stronger
underride guards that will remain in place during a crash and to mandate
guards for more large trucks and trailers.
