AP: Trinity Guardrail Passes "Most" Crash Test

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) A highway guardrail system has passed most of the crash tests financed by the state of Virginia.

But the chief engineer for Virginia’s Department of Transportation said in a memo to employees that one of the tests performed in a way that “could have serious consequences” for vehicle occupants.
Reports obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday show that the guardrails passed the four standard tests. But officials are raising concerns about one test designed to show what happens when the device is hit at an angle.

The state says it will soon begin replacing the devices on roadways where crashes could be more severe.

Trinity had called the state’s tests “questionable and unreliable” and accused Virginia of conducting the tests merely to support its lawsuit against the company.
