A T-bone car accident happens when the front end of a vehicle hits the side of another car. It resembles the shape of a T upon a side impact, thus the name T-Bone. Bodily injuries mostly depend on vehicle speed.
However, low-speed collisions can still cause a lot of injuries for all occupants involved. Injuries can range from moderate shock to severe trauma.
- T-bone accidents are close to 13% of all crashes.
Many of these accidents are from distracted driving but who knows what the real numbers are since no one reports themselves.
