A T-bone collision occurs when one driver strikes another from the side. These collisions can happen at intersections when one party runs a red light at high speed, or at lower speeds when one party backs into oncoming traffic or two cars collide in a parking area.
Injuries in T-bone collisions range from minor to fatal. Much depends in this kind of collision on the exact location of impact. Driving into the engine or trunk area can cause injuries, but driving directly into the passenger area — door, quarter panels and air bag areas can cause much more serious injuries. When impact is severe, the side of the car is pushed in and the colliding car is sharing the driver's or passenger's physical space.
