I agree with Vance. I'm all for safe cars. I also think this is BULL. I was a teenager driving a '64 Chevelle and got in a very similar accident with a new Sunbird. It felt like I hit a pot hole. I looked up to see the Sunbird air born and flying across someones lawn before it came to rest against a fence. The car was totaled. The Sunbird, not mine. I needed a bumper, a left front fender and a new set of headlights. It did tweak the frame a quarter inch, but the new metal bolted up with out an issue and it still tracked straight.
I was traveling about 15 miles per hour and the Sunbird was going 45. (speeding for the road she was on)
I have a hard time believing this staged "accident" is anything but a hoax to influence people negatively against our wonderful hobby.
Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.
