I am Rusty Haight, The "Human Crash Test Dummy". AMA
Hi, my name is Rusty Haight.
I’m sometimes known as the Human Crash Dummy because I drive in live car crash tests. I have driven in more than 900 crash tests to date and hold the Guinness World Record for “Most Human Subject Crash Tests.” I teach crash investigation and analysis worldwide and have been investigating and analyzing crashes for more than 30 years. For the last 20 of those 30 years, I have been the driver in full scale crash tests. I’ve been on numerous Discovery Channel shows about car crashes, Stan Lee’s Superhuman’s, Ripley’s Believe it Or Not, and others. I also hosted a show for two seasons on the Discovery Network called Accident Investigator. I was ranked as the 24th toughest man by Mens Journal (barely beating out Hillary Clinton on the list). One of the areas I’ve done a lot of teaching, research and testing on is what people call the “black box” we find in recent model cars, light trucks and SUVs.
