This paper describes the development and verification of a moose/dummy for testing the crash worthiness of cars in moose-car accidents. The dummy is based on and verified against the results of a staged collsion in which a passenger car impacts a moose cadaver. The cadaver test is also described in the report. Moose-car accidents contribute to about 2 percent of the death casualties in the Nordic road traffic and the type is even more represented among slighter injuries. Since several attempts to reduce the frequency of moose-car accidents have provided to have minor effect improvements of the crash worthiness of passenger cars in this kind of impact might be desirable.
