Rear-end collisions are the most common type of auto accident.  While the only way to prevent injury is to not be involved in a wreck, there are certain things you can do to limit the extent of injury suffered from an accident.

What to do if you are about to be hit from the rear:

– Sit fully back against the seat and head restraint

– Shrug shoulders firmly to limit neck motion

– Look straight ahead with head back slightly

– (If stopped already) apply brake firmly

– (If the driver) place hands flat against the steering wheel
