The front end of one vehicle crashing into the side of another vehicle, usually at a 90-degree angle, is referred to as a broadside, T-bone, or side-impact collision. An estimated 10,000 people lose their lives every year in the United States during side-impact crashes, accounting for about 25% of all crash fatalities in an average year. In addition to these deaths, several thousand victims sustain serious injuries during this type of car accident.
