To establish scientific evidence of the relationship between the risk of fetal loss and rear-end vehicle collisions, we performed the drop test using SLC Wistar rats in the second trimester of pregnancy. After dropping, the pregnant rats were observed throughout the pregnancy. As results acceleration, up to 92G, alone did not appear to cause negative fetal outcomes.
