5 ways in which passengers get killed in road accidents

By: Muyela Roberto

Since the beginning of this year (2018) the number of people who have died on the roads has surpassed 2,345.

This is according to (NTSA) that indicated 2,162 people lost their lives in road related crashes in 2017.

The actual number is however feared to be higher as some accidents go unreported.

This depends on factors like where they happened, time of tragedy and who was involved.

However, what really causes death or survivors with injuries during vehicle accidents?

Why should the vehicle not just ram in another, stop and then allow all passengers to walk out and perhaps board another vehicle?

What causes the broken ribs, limbs deadly scars, excessive bleeding and in some cases death with or without out any form of visible injuries?

The following are some of the actual causes of injuries and death during accidents:

When a vehicle in motion comes to a drastic stop for instance by hitting a pole, another car or a wall, all other objects and people inside continue travelling at the initial speed.

When one is not restrained by a seat-belt, they end-up crashing in the dashboard ,steering wheeling or the seat in front.

This usually leads to head, neck, chest and abdomen injuries.

As the locomotive stops, the cramp zones cave inside to absorb the shock/force and as you crash forward, the engine and other front compartments crash against or towards you.

This results to broken limbs, ribs and even deep tissues injuries caused by metals.

Loosely fixed seats are another hidden danger during accidents.

A vehicle can stop on impact but send belted passengers flying towards the front after seats get dislodged from their contact points.

This has capacity to cause head, limb and abdomen injuries as the victims can not chose how and where to land.

During rolling or a head on collision, parts of the vehicle get dislodged and before they come to rest, they fly and my cause injuries to whoever they hit or land on.

Flying objects can include luggage, metals, glasses, other passengers among other vehicle parts.

They and mostly land on the upper abdomen and the head usually sufferers greatest risk.

4. Getting thrown out of the vehicle

This mostly happens when impact of the crash is so high.

It may launch front or even back seat occupants out through the windscreen windows depending on the direction of crash force.

The probability of getting thrown out increases when a passenger is not belted as they will lack something to restrain them in their seats.

When one is thrown out, they risk being landed upon by the vehicle or land on an unpredictable surface which may inflict server injuries or cause death.

In as much as safety belts are great life savers, when worn improperly, they could end-up breaking your neck, smashing the ribs or stomach during a crash.

High impact crashes also result in seat belt injuries around the abdomen which may cause further damage to inner tissues.

However, such ...
