About the outline of the accident

Subaru Outback 2019 Model

In southwestern Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, the 2019 drive recorder footage of a collision between a Subaru Outback and a school bus is now making headlines again.

Despite the horrific nature of the accident, the bus occupants and driver, as well as the driver of the Subaru Outback, were unharmed.

actual footage

The above video is a drive recorder video taken from a nearby car that was shared on the American bulletin board site Reddit in October 2019.

A bus turning left entered the intersection where the Subaru Outback driver was running in the opposite lane avoiding traffic jams. The Outback braked sharply and steered to the left, but the front of the bus collided with the side of the Outback.

The Outback, which was blown away by the impact, was caught on the curb, then turned twice on the shoulder and stopped on its side. In the slow motion video, the area around the door on the passenger side is dented, which shows how powerful the impact was.

No injuries, driver unharmed…?

North Carolina television station WSOC-TV reported that there were no casualties in the crash.

There was one student on the bus at the time, but neither the driver nor the driver was injured, and the driver of the Subaru Outback, which made two turns, was also unharmed and drove away, which is even more surprising.

On August 4, 2022, IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) in the United States released the results of side collision tests under more severe conditions for seven popular SUVs, including the Outback.

As a result, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Chevrolet Malibu are “poor”. Honda Accord is “Marginal”. Hyundai Sonata and Volkswagen Jetta are “Acceptable.” Only the 2022 Subaru Outback received a “Good” rating.

Subaru vehicles are also regular winners of the “Automotive Safety Performance Five Star Award”. The fact that Subaru’s safety myth is not just a gimmick can be seen not only from crash tests and past performance, but also from actual accident footage.
