Restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was severely compromised.

Severe intrusion of the door hinge pillar, instrument panel, and parking brake contributed to a high risk of injuries to the left thigh, left knee, and left lower leg and foot and a moderate risk to the right thigh. The dummy's left leg was trapped between the seat and instrument panel; the seat had to be removed to free the dummy.

Extensive intrusion wedged the dummy into a tight space during the crash, and the steering column moved too far upward.
