Based on biomechanical Total Human Model for Safety (THUMS) dummy and traditional rigid dummy, the train driver injury of secondary impact in railway crash events is analyzed and the results are compared. The results of THUMS dummy are more detail and comprehensive to describe the injury of train driver. It could be applied to the safety research of crashworthiness of train driver cab in future. The driver injury is serious and needed to be optimized the parameter of cab console to reduce injury risk for the driver in the next work.
