The quintessential American family vehicle — the minivan — just underwent a series of crash safety tests. And, unfortunately, the results were not pretty.
This video from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, also known as IIHS, shows the front of several minivan models suffering significant damage when crashing head-on.
Five different minivans were put to what's called the "small overlap test," which simulates the front of a vehicle colliding with another vehicle or a tree or pole.
