The impact drove the back of the car body up under the back window, which exploded into the car, and drove the car into the vehicle ahead hard enough to destroy the front bumper and grille, and deploy the driver air bag. The third vehicle hit a fourth, and the fourth hit a fifth. It was a nasty hit. The car did it's job, and absorbed impact with the crush zones, and the Recaro seat probably helped reduce the whiplash. Even so, my wife is having neck and back pain, and is being treated by an orthopedist.
