Trust me ....... the driver didn't walk away from that, they don't cut the roof off for nothing.
In an RTC everything moves forward..... so nothing hits the seat really.

Imagine this.....

Car hits wall.
Car stops...
Airbag explodes...
Body moves forward hitting Airbag....
Body stops......
All your internal organs then hit your front area of you're body before bouncing around like a bullet in a cellar .......

Finally you return to you're seat.....

Never nice to see.

Poor sods that's all I can say
