Yeah. I was hit by a slower moving car and walked away from it, but the next day sucked.

Same thing happened to a friend of mine once. He jumped the moment before impact and the only consequence (to him) was a lost shoe.

I love that that video had an ad on the bottom (for me at least) for "Mitt Romney: Official Site". Made it THAT much better.

I do major collision investigation at work. It's amazing but when peds get whacked, you can usually get close to the point of impact from where their shoes lie. People even come out of tall and tight boots.

This happened to a cousin of mine about 15 years ago in Montreal, execpt he was hit by the police car. He didn't quite walk away like this quy, but doesn't have any permanent injuries. I still remember him saying that if he hadn't jumped he'd be dead. Needless to say his education was paid for as well as a nice little nest egg.

MoonPirate: Why does everyone in Russia have a camera in their car?


Many people do becaise. It is a common way of making money in Russia - local websites pay cash for crash videos. That is why the government of Russia has blocked parts of YouTube and other US video sites - Russian politicians are getting kickbacks from the Russian crash sites.

Earlier this year in April I was crossing at a crosswalk and a large truck ran the red light; I tried to jump but was not high enough to absorb it; instead my tibula and fibula were both shattered and was left for dead, luckily found by local cops a bit later and EMS called, Walking and such now, 5 months later but it was a hell of a impact/experience...also expensive, thank goodness my auto insurance picked up the medical bills...just under 100k alone for the week and a half of intensive care/inpatient therapy...isnt even counting the following 3 months of cognative and physical therapy..oh yeah, a gash just above my eye to the bone, that was fun. my gf thought i was jumped by a mob when she got to the hospital pre-surgery later that night...i was in a ghreat mood though...like super up beat...except the tube in my dick.

I don't think that's it, I think Russians are suing the crap out of each other after purposely causing accidents. This video might not even be as labeled. The pedestrian might have caused that to sue.

I think mythbusters covered this one previously. If you jump, the impact is human vs safety glass, which gives a fraction of a second later than chassis steel. Doesn't sound like much, but in a 40+mph (easier read as 58+ feet per second) collision milliseconds count. The damage done is different by degrees of magnitude. When it comes to an 18-wheeler it won't matter, but for normal passenger cars if your legs can clear the engine block you are far more likely to walk away by jumping just before impact

I don't understand how your car insurance paid for that. Don't get me wrong-- I'm glad they did-- I just don't get why they would.

That's how some auto insurance plans work. Mine does, too. (State Farm) They pay up to a certain amount (after deductible in many cases) for *any* injury the payer sustains on a roadway or in a road- or driving-related incident. Then, of course, they unleash their lawyers on the responsible party and *their* insurance carrier (if they have one). That's how they make it back. The point is, they cover their clients regardless of fault or circumstance, within defined limits (in this case, broad), until they can settle up with whoever's really responsible. They don't want a good customer to stop paying premiums so they can cover short-term medical bills instead.

Mythbusters did that one too. Buster the Crash Test Dummy was utterly demolished in the elevator, despite "jumping" via spring mechanism just before impact.

I saw a guy do an experiment on this using an egg a while ago. He had the egg in a little elevator and a spring would cause the egg to do a little jump right before impact. It ended as you would expect.

His reasoning was the you would only subtract the force of the jump from the the total energy of the fall.

I mentioned this to my father today, and he said the same thing happened to him, too. But in his case, both he and the driver had the same carrier. I should check my policy carefully. I know I'm covered if I'm a passenger in someone else's car in an accident, and I'd assumed that would extend to *any* roadway injury, but now I'm not sure.

So his reasoning was that of every scientist of the past 400 years? Good to know they're consistent. The funny thing is that even if you had some super magic gorilla steroid legs and could jump hard enough to offset the acceleration, the top of the elevator likely didn't get the memo and would still crush you like a bug.

I think the trick is to aim for the trap-door that's in all the movies.

Michigan is No-Fault, which I don't fully understand but know it means it covers stuff like this. I payed 300.00 and they covered the 0ther 99% of the bills; also got 20 grand for my pain/suffering a few weeks back. Sadly my engine on my van had died a few weeks back as well as being layed off, an the injury cost me a new job I had lined up. 2012 can suck it - though, I will say the stay at Oakwood was GREAT. Seriously comfy and relaxing.

Was hit by a car moving at a good clip when I was about 13 years old. Did just what the guy in the video did, and I bounced off the windshield something nice and rolled a few feet before jumping up with that "holy SH*T, did that just happen?!" mindset. I felt like a goddamn super hero. Sore the next day, but otherwise, not a scratch.

F*cker drove off without even trying to see if I was ok. Meh.
