Additional Tests Of The Trinity Guardrail System

A Flipped Pickup

Due to the extensive injuries and deaths caused by a decrease in the width of the ET-Plus System, Trinity has been ordered to conduct new crash safety tests. A number of tests have been conducted by Virginia, one of the 30 states that has placed a ban on Trinity products. The tests were conducted at the Karco Engineering, LLC, testing facility. The vehicle used in the crash test was a pickup truck. When the vehicle struck the guardrail, the guardrail caused the pickup to go airborne and flip over. Whether the guardrail pierced the pickup is unclear. Reporters were permitted to observe the test. However, they could only do so from dozens of yards away.

Why Retests Were Ordered

This order for retests stems from a secret design change where Trinity reduced the width of its ET-Plus System from 5 inches to 4, causing the guardrail to act like a spear when struck. The result has been devastating, leading people to suffer permanent injuries and even resulting in death.
