Spanish term or phrase: Colisión por alcance
From a road safety report from the Spanish Dirección General de Tráfico.

A table listing the different types of road traffic collisions (with my translations so far):

Colisión frontal -> head-on collisions
Colisión frontal-lateral -> ?
Colisión lateral -> side collisions
**Colisión por alcance** -> ?
Colisión múltiple -> multiple collisions
Colisión obstáculo calzada -> collisions with fixed roadside objects
Atropello -> collisions with pedestrians
Vuelco en calzada -> ?
Salida calzada izquierda -> Exit to the left
Salida calzada derecha -> Exit to the right

Can anyone help with a suitable term in English which fits?

The other terms will be posted in separate questions for more points.

Many thanks.
