Teens Destroy a 2010 Mustang in Crash
That's hardly a piece of news, some might say. How about finding out that neither of the three occupants were hurt in the incident? Even if they weren’t wearing their seat belts and one of them even got ejected from the car, they all survived with minor injuries.
Unbelievable, isn’t it? According to Jalopnik, the story is unconfirmed. However, the details offered by mustangblog.com makes us believe it. As for the car, most of the damage to the Mustang is concentrated toward the front end of the car, while the cabin is somehow intact. The speed the teens were driving their car at impact was not mentioned. Moreover, one of the pictures show the speedometer stuck at 100 mph (161 km/h).
Looking at the bright side, the five-star safety rating that Mustang got from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) a couple of months ago, has now been confirmed. Not in a very pleasant way, but it seems that the maximum rating for driver and passenger in front and side crash tests the 2010 model got were well-deserved.
The car also include several crumple zones especially introduced to absorb impact energy and protect the cabin, which pretty much explains how come the aforementioned car had the cabin almost intact after the crash. Furthermore, according to Ford, the body of the coupe is 31 percent stiffer compared to the previous Mustang, while the convertible is more than twice as stiff.
