The most serious car accident injuries occur in frontal crashes. These injuries include broken bones, bloody wounds and threat to life. However, you are more likely to be injured in a low speed rear impact crash when there is little or no structural damage to either vehicle.
If an occupant in a crash is struck in the rear there is a good possibility that they were caught by surprise. Occupants caught by surprise are 15X more likely to suffer long term consequences.
