Truck didn't absorb too much energy. At 80 I would expect more damage.

Yep apparently on impact it launched 20 ft in the air, airbag knocked me out and I was 212 ft from the road when ems got to me.






I'm thinking your truck wouldn't like that after "launching" 20' into the air and coming to rest 200' away.

Cops are absolutely horrible at accident reconstruction.
They sucked before ABS when they had skid marks and they are even worse now.

Has to do with barametric pressure, air density and ambient lapse rate. A 30a mph crash is increased to a 804 mph crash under the standard conditions of 29.92 and 15°c

Never understood buying a truck then putting low profile tires on it.
Defeats the while purpose of a truck
