A new series of crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) revealed troubling results for minivans that are often perceived as some of the safest vehicles on the road. One crash test in particular was described by a lead executive at IIHS as "one of the worst crash tests we’ve ever seen." That comment summarized the small overlap crash test for the Nissan Quest, which wound up getting a poor rating from the IIHS."A person experiencing this would be lucky to ever walk normally again," said Dave Zuby, Executive Vice President of the Insurance institute.
