rear-impact collision

rear im·pact col·li·sion

/ri(ə)r ˈimˌpakt kəˈliZHən/

Noun

A rear-impact collision occurs when a stationary or slow-moving object is struck by a vehicle that is traveling faster. Much of the forward impact is cushioned by the seat and the frame of a vehicle, and less likely to produce injury.
