Motor Vehicle Collision Injury Prevention

Automobile accidents are something we hear about on the radio or see on TV every day. Generally speaking, injuries resulting from vehicle collisions occur due to a high rate of speed. However, farm equipment (i.e. tractors) cannot travel nearly as fast as regular motor vehicles, yet the result of a motor vehicle and tractor collision are just as damaging, if not more so.

The weight and size of most farm tractors are much greater than most vehicles on rural roads/highways. One particular case simulation used in the EOP materials focuses on this exact situation, provides the logistics of the collision described in the story, and ends with a very possible conclusion.
