Most car accidents happen when vehicles collide from the front and back. When that happens, there is much more protection that you have with a side impact. In the front, you have the engine compartment. In the back, you have the trunk space. On both ends, you have reinforced bumpers. Side impact crashes can cause significant personal injuries even at lower speeds. These accidents occur many times due to extreme driver negligence.
