    Two cases in which there was unusual damage sustained by vehicles during a collision sequence are presented and discussed. The specific causes of the vehicular damage are identified, and the relationship between the analysis of the damage and the stated sequence of events is presented. An accurate understanding of the actual events that occurred in the collision sequences was obtained through the photographic and collision deformation analyses conducted.
