Government to announce improved crash test program

The government is upgrading its crash test program for new cars and trucks to give consumers better information about vehicle safety.

The program will continue to grade new vehicles on a scale of up to five stars but add an overall safety rating that combines scores from several crash tests.

The new system also will include new front-end tests, a test simulating a vehicle striking a pole in the side and female crash test dummies to represent women and large children.
