The Dangers of a Cab-Over Engine Truck
In most vehicles, there is a crush or crumple zone outside of the occupant safety compartment that absorb crash energy as they crumple, thereby reducing the forces available to injure the vehicle occupants.
Cab-over-engine trucks designs sometimes do not include an occupant safety compartment or a crush zone. Thus, the only structure between an occupant's lower body and the injury-producing crash forces is some sheet metal.
A cab-over engine truck accident could result in:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
