Ford F-150 | Lawsuits, Lawyers | Accidents: Injury, Fatalities | Trucks, Crash Tests, Low Safety Rating

The Ford F-150 pickup truck was given the lowest rating in crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The tests project a vehicle into a barrier at 40 mph. Unlike crash tests performed by the Federal government, the Institutes test only involves 40% of the front of the vehicle.

As a result, vehicles in the offset test crash into the barrier just to the left of the hood ornament. Offset tests are useful in determining the structural strength of a vehicle. Brian O’Neil, President of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, said “the F-150 exhibited major collapse of the occupant compartment in the offset test.” This results in a collapse and the test dummy’s movement was not well controlled.

The dummy's head and neck suffered high injury measures on its head and neck. Late airbag deployment during the crash also caused the high injury measures." Mr. O'Neill also stated that if the simulated crash of the F-150 been real, it would have probably resulted in a fatality. "This is as bad as it gets in terms of crash performance," O'Neill commented. When asked what he (Mr. O’Neil) would do if he owned a Ford F-150 O'Neill replied, "I'd get rid of it, I wouldn't put my family, in a vehicle like this.
