You have to feel sympathy for Thor, the driver who ignored the lane departure warning in his pristine new Volvo XC90. The SUV drifted into a ditch at 50mph, after which it was launched into the air before crashing with a thud into an embankment.

It’s just as well that Thor and the family he was carrying aboard his bright orange XC90 are crash test dummies, because even at that speed there was a surprising amount of violent energy dissipated during the accident.
