Report on Rear Hatch, Tailgate, and Back Door Opening in Crashes 
and Occupant Ejection Through the Back Area

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces the publication by NHTSA of a report 
concerning ``Door Opening and Occupant Ejection through Rear Hatches, 
Tailgates, and Other Back Doors.'' This report analyzes the available 
data on door opening and occupant ejection from hatchback cars, 
stationwagons, sport utility vehicles, and light vans--vehicles 
frequently equipped with a rear hatch, tailgate, or other back door--
that were involved in towaway crashes. This report was done as part of 
the agency's effort to understand the mechanisms of injury in vehicle 
crashes. It updates a 1990 report on ``Hatchback, Tailgate, and Back 
Door Opening in Crashes and Occupant Ejection through the Back Area,'' 
by adding four more years of the agency's detailed data on door opening 
and occupant ejection. The agency seeks public review and comment on 
this report.

DATES: Comments should be received no later than March 28, 1994.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons may obtain a free copy of the report by 
sending a self-addressed mailing label to Ms. Glorious Harris (NAD-51), 
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 400 Seventh Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20590. (Docket hours, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through 
Friday.)
