Damage that results from direct contact between a vehicle and another object is called contact damage.  Contact damage can take on distinguishing characteristic,
depending on the type of collision.

On occasion, our experts can discern what type of object a vehicle struck by simply inspecting the damage profile of the vehicle.  Pole impacts are unique, in that they cause a
rounded, and often smooth, damage pattern on the vehicle.  

In addition, the direction that vehicle body parts are crushed can often be utilized by an accident reconstruction expert to explain the direction of the force exerted upon a
vehicle.  This directional component of the force is called the
principal direction of force (PDOF).

By closely examining the damage profile on a vehicle in conjunction with an analysis of the PDOF, accident reconstructionists can explain the rotation of a vehicle upon
impact.  Clear understanding of vehicle rotation is critical in reconstructing the dynamic interaction that took place between a vehicle and pole at impact.

1992 Chevy Blazer vs. pole (pdf)           2000 Buick Regal vs pole (pdf)           2002 Ford Taurus vs pole (pdf  )         2004 Ford Mustang vs pole (pdf)   
This 1992 Chevy Blazer was involved in a serious front end collision with
a pole. The intrusion (depth of damage) on the Blazer is considerable.
Notice how the area that directly contacted the pole was rounded and
pushed inward. Only a collision with a hard cylindrical object can cause
this type of damage.
This 2000 Buick Regal was involved in a serious front end collision with
a pole. The intrusion (depth of damage) on the Regal is considerable.
This 2002 Ford Taurus was involved in a serious front end collision with
a tree. The intrusion (depth of damage) on the Taurus is considerable.
Notice how the area that directly contacted the pole was rounded and
pushed inward. Only a collision with a hard cylindrical object can cause
this type of damage.
Notice how the area that directly contacted the tree was rounded and
pushed inward. Only a collision with a hard cylindrical object can cause
this type of damage.
This 2004 Ford Mustang was involved in a serious front end collision
with a pole. The intrusion (depth of damage) on the Mustang is
considerable.
Notice how the area that directly contacted the pole was rounded and
pushed inward. Only a collision with a hard cylindrical object can
cause this type of damage.
