Yep... I would think that no matter what the vehicle is equipped with, 9000 lbs smashing into a car that can't weigh more than 1500 lbs at oh say, 45 mph, would really hurt.
"Every time I see one of those things, I can't help but wonder what it would look like if my 9000 pound truck t-boned it"
I don`t know much about the mechanics of vehicle collisions, but with the great variety of technologies, materials and designs around today, I doubt the equation is as simple as "the biggest vehicle wins".
And it really is dangerous overconfidence to assume that it is.

I've been rolling around town in a manual toyota yaris. It`s probably a good bit bigger than this but I can still get in and out of any space and I get 40 mpg so I love my little go-buggy.
