The methods of using thrown distance in pedestrian impacts to calculate the impact velocity are common known. In spite of significant research carried out by German scientists such as Appel, Stürtz, Gotzen, Kühnel and Elsholz, the problem has not been solved yet. Owning to it, authors of this paper decided to present another method allowing to approximate the velocity of a car during collision with a pedestrian. The main creator of the method, John Searle provided formule, based on the relationship connected to the pedestrian, among: projection speed, projection angle and total thrown distance. According to the Searle's rule, the range of velocities (between minimum and maximum of pedestrian's projection speed) could be calculated. Including special factor called »projection efficiency«, it gives a reasonable estimate of the vehicle speed at the moment of impact.
