I love this quote attributed to Elon Musk about crumple zones without engines in them:
“it’s just like jumping into a pool from a high diving board — you want a deep pool and one without rocks in it.”

Part of the reason I’m so excited about electric cars is the superior protection they can offer by having no giant lump of metal to come busting into the cabin in case of an accident. If these teenagers had been in a different vehicle, there’s an extremely low chance they would have been able to walk away from a crash that sent them flying 82 feet (25 meters) through the air.
