2 Due to the intrusion of the driver door during the side impact pole test, the interior door panel struck the torso of the driver dummy, causing high resultant lower spine acceleration of 85 g's. High resultant lower spine accelerations, in excess of 82 g's, have a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.
