It is a myth that vehicles must be traveling at a minimum speed in order to cause an injury to the occupants inside the vehicle. There is no minimum speed threshold that must be attained in order to cause injury. In fact, there have been many collisions where a vehicle was going less than 10 mph in which one or more of the occupants died! There are many factors that contribute to the cause and severity of injury as a result of the motor vehicle collision, thus, basing the possibility of injury solely on the speed of the vehicle(s) is not possible. What this means is everyone involved in an accident should be evaluated for injury regardless of how fast any vehicle involved was going at the time of the collision.
