How reliable are truck underride guards?

CHICOPEE,Mass. (WWLP)-Each year hundreds of people are killed when their cars slide under a big truck.

Despite increased safety standards, many underride guards on big rigs fail upon impact, according to recent tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 22News I-Team inspects trucks on local highways to see if they have the proper equipment installed to ensure your safety.

The truck underride safety report airs this Thursday, May 8 on 22News at 11pm.
