The article covers the incompatible vehicle crashes. Today computer programs are widely applied in the analysis of vehicle crashes. However, it is the expert's responsibility to select the right collision model in terms of the application of the right IT tool or a selection of the right option in the computer program. Such selection must be adequate to the incident analysed, also in terms of the limitations of the models of contact between the simulation objects. The problem has been presented based on a case study a head on truck-to-car collision. The research has involved the use of VSIM simulation program. The experimental verification has demonstrated a practical application of the impact (force) crash model with the volumetric (3D) collision detection model, as most adequate to the collision analysis of incompatible vehicles.
