Yeah the back side of those barriers in the video are backed with what looks like an extreme amount of dirt.

Nice video, but it would have been better if a dummy was involved just to show what kind of damage it would do to a human body :D

Prime candidate. I couldn't even imagine the force since the cab just flies off the body. It looks like an ejection seat out of a fighter jet..

u cant really plug in those numbers into that equation cauz the units kinda dont match up

because SI is ten times better than the english unit, lets convert:
65,000 lbs = 29,483 kg
50 mph = 22.35 m/s

pluggin in, we get :
0.5 * m * v^2
0.5 * 29,483 * (22.352^2)

this equals 7,365,153 kg*(m/s)^2
which is the same thing as saying 7,365,153 N*m ...

going back to the english unit, we need to divide this number by 1.356 because:
1 ft*lb = 1.356 N*m

so..
7,365,153 / 1.356 about equals 5.5 million ft*lbs


Indeed.... IZ beat me to it....

I saw that vid years ago.... it's been around for a loooong time... Still impressive though.
