GOT to ask some serious questions about how the wall reacted and the damage inflicted to the car
That was 100% luck to walk away from that !!!

Not sure why the wall ripped his car open like that...most likely his car hit a soft spot in the connections!

Wish i could find more info on this cause i would like to know more about it as well!

Looking at it looks as if the wall on the corner section yielded and gave way - perhaps by design - BUT then the car caught a strong support which jsut opened it like a can-opener.
Now the Qs are was the wall MEANT to yield initially adn they forgot abotu teh "strogn" points or was it a failure or was it so old that they hand't really updated it to newer standards ( hence why I asked if anyone new how old the vid is )

I had that vid in my PC for a very long time, I'll post it here for saving if anyone wants. It dates back to atleast 98-01 if not earlier than that. Not such a recent happening, I don't remember too much about it coming in '02-'05. I could be wrong, but 70% right.
