Also, in head-on or rear-end collisions, the body of the driver or even the passengers can lunge forward. Their heads can make contact with the seats in front of them, the steering wheel, or the dashboard. Some individuals may even hit their heads on the windshield, especially if not wearing a seatbelt.
