What happens to your body in a rear-end collision?

When another automobile collides with yours, the speed and momentum will transfer to your vehicle, forcing it to jolt forward suddenly. The intense shock of this movement can cause your body to snap forward and then immediately back into the seat. As a result, your body may endure a violent shifting of internal organs and musculoskeletal structures like bones, tendons, and ligaments. This jerking motion is the primary cause of injury in rear-end collisions.
