(NBC News)The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety put eight midsize SUVS through crashes where part of the vehicle's front end hit a five-foot-tall rigid barrier at 40 miles an hour.
"It might occur when a vehicle runs off the road and hits a pole or a tree or the edge of a bridge abutment," said Executive Vice President of IIHS.
