A dramatic little video

A Smart car hitting a concrete barrier at 70 mph (not occupied – some wags blew around $12K-$14K or so for some yuks though). It’s unclear how much damage there was to the driver’s compartment; but as one of the less annoying commenters noted; no matter the safety equipment it is unlikely for the human body to survive deceleration from that speed in anything. I’ll take nimble over armored on my commute, thankyouverymuch.
