    It`s probably not a Smart car, they have a very strong steel chasis that doesn`t bend that much, even at a 70mph impact. I saw it on Fifth Gear.

    Yeah Vhreio, it doesn`t bend that much when you crash into a concrete wall at an angle and the only momentum is from the car itself. I saw it on fifth gear too, but they didn`t smash the thing between two huge trucks now did they?

    Start thinking for yourself man. Don`t just regurgitate what you saw on television.

    Bloody hell! That`s one hell of a crash! But it`s not a Smart car because:
    1 - That`s not a `Smart` wheel.
    2 - The "safety cell" (i.e. the silver or black bits and main structure) are there to prevent that.
    3 - The plastic body panels (the coloured bits) wouldn`t bend like that.

    It was probably a Chinese car. They`re about as safe as nuclear warfare. That or the following truck was going waaay faster than the other two vehicles.

    As an EMT, I gotta say:

    PLEASE don`t whip out your camera phones to take pictures of dead bodies at the scene of the accident. I was on duty when a passenger jet went down on Guam 12 years ago almost to the day, and several hundred people died, but the scene was packed with just as many people with cameras taking pictures of people as they tried to disentangle themselves from the wreckage. 30 people survived impact, fewer the next few days. This includes a retard who wanted a closeup of the wreckage that blew up in his face. Do us all a favor and GTFO. We don`t have the manpower for your bullpoo when something goes down.

    lol danthew strikes again with another witty comment full of intelligent goodness.

    This is obviously a mid-sized car but the car is not exactly the point here.

    I think the ambulance is a bit unnecessary since no one in the car could have survived and the guys in the trucks probably didn`t feel anything more than a slight bump.

    Deary me... I have read your comment, and find no sign of sarcasm anywhere. Now that is just sad. A biggar vehicle IS more dangerous to the surrounding evironment, other motorists and pedestrians included.
    First, imagine getting a blow to your legs (which is usually the height of the hood of the car) so powerful that it crushes all your bones in them. It`ll hurt like hell, you might even die.
    Second, imagine that same blow, with the same force, but now, as a wall, reaching to you forehead. Crushes everything.

    In the picture is further proof of this example, but with a vehicle.

    So does a bigger car, say an SUV, impose a bigger threat to humanity than a smaller car. The funny part is that many of the bigger, "i.e. safer cars", don`t do nearly as well in crash tests as smaller ones. The reason: they are mostly built in the US, with wobbly and soft chassis that, when stressed, will succumb entirely.

    Also (which I couldn`t fit into my previous comment), SUV:s are sometimes too primitive in their safety structure, meaning that maybe you`ll get lucky and not have the engine squashed up into the actual cabin, but then you`ll just be giljoutined by the steering wheel axle.

    Besides, if you choose a bigger vehicle, simply because it feels safer, others might be intimidated to do the same thing, and you will have the same problem all over again, except the now-small car weighs over two tons.
