The study of the crash between normal sedan and teenage cyclist was examined in previous paper, and is here continued analyzing the influence of the front part of the vehicle in the injury caused by the accident. The vehicle is a SUV, with high frontal part. No variation is executed on the model of the teenage cyclist and the bike. The position of the teenage cyclist regard to SUV is the same: three different positions are analyzed: front, rear and lateral position. The injury on the cyclist head is examined by HIC criterion, in the way indicated in the rules. Correlation HIC – AIS is used to calculate the lethality of the injuries. The work is arranged to calculate the damage to the chest by 3 ms criterion, which result is not yet ready. The principal conclusion is done that the injury of the head is more dangerous for the SUV impact than the sedan, but only to the maximum speed (50 km/h). A comparison is executed with the teenage pedestrian concluding that the pedestrian is subjected to greater injury, because the bike absorbs a part of the energy in the front and side crash. The more dangerous injury is the telescoping.
