Overrides occur when a truck runs over a passenger vehicle. Underrides occur when a smaller vehicle slides underneath a truck. Both are made possible by the large height difference between the top of a car and the bottom of a tractor trailer. Both underride and override often result in serious or fatal injuries for the occupants of smaller vehicles.
