AbstractCases of pcdcstrian and automobile collisions collected in an on-the-spot survey of accidents in Adclaicle arc analysecl. It is shown that cars having a conventional frontal shape have a different injury potential from cars having a sloping front, e.g., Volkswagen. The directions of impact forces arc relatecl to the sites and patterns of fracture of the ribs, pelvis, femur.
