The UK’s On The Spot (OTS) accident data collection project started in 2000 and continues to investigate 500 crashes per year. Investigations are undertaken minutes after the collision has occurred to gather all the perishable information. At the time of writing over 3,000 crashes involving all road users and all injury severities have been examined. The OTS database provides a unique insight into the prevailing factors that have been seen to cause crashes and the associated human injuries and… Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the type of injury, i.e., to the tibia and knee ligament, could become an injury to the femur with an increase in bumper height, and the main injury at an impact velocity of around 40km/h is a fracture of the lower extremities. Expand
