Abstract
This study aims to present all of the injuries sustained by 17 post-mortem human surrogates(PMHS)tested in vehicle-pedestrian impact experiments and explore the injuries, their sources, mechanisms and clinical relevance by comparing them to injuries sustained by 24 PMHS from previous literature and by the pedestrians that were entered into a recent in-depth database of vehicle pedestrian crashes. The 17 PMHS were tested in lateral impact by one of five late model production vehicles at 40 km/h...
