That is pretty powerful. I had been watching a bunch of Russian crash compilations on utube earlier in the evening. Serious stuff.
I was a passenger in the back of a Mercedes a few years back in Munchen De with a driver who was on pain meds for a wisdom tooth procedure. Rainy day, blind corner on a dogleg road, too much speed,we had a head on with a beer truck. Front was crushed back to the firewall, steering wheel telescoped into dash but we all had seat belts on. All the doors worked post impact. No fire. We walked away from it (4 of us, but my knees were pretty banged up). It got my attention it happened so fast and was so violent for just an instant. The effects lasted for some time.
With the stakes so high in my profession I decided a little over a year ago to quit drinking anything at all. It is nice never having to worry about that and driving ( I don't mind being the designated driver at all) but I sure do worry about the clown coming at me head on, on a Friday night, on a two lane road that a pretty common here.
