This is an animation, but it's pretty funny:

Build a car designed to run into walls.

build a rollcage designed to withstand zero impact:

Showoff cage rather than roll cage looks like it makes it even more difficult to get out of the car when it rolls. Interesting he doesn't turn off the car after it rolls, either.

Ouch!

This is for sale in the San Francisco bay area, asking $1000.
Whatever it hit must have been pretty solid.

^^ As I can't imagine a small diameter pole remaining rigid enough to cause that impression, I'm guessing it was from a guy wire used to secure a large power pole (or something akin to that).

I know right! I hadn't considered a guy wire, good thought. I was thinking a front end loader bucket or maybe a flatbed tow truck on it's side.
I did consider one of those short poles filled with concrete, but those are usually 4" I think, that looks like 2".
Crazy!

^^ Was that video supposed to imply that the maroon SUV at the end was the same one that made the lane change earlier?

No. They are clearly two completely different vehicles.

Edit*

I guess you can compare the two as they both pulled the same stunt. One successfully, one not successfully.

Shitty title for attention grab.

All those drivers were going way too fast. That pickup was doing like 50 when he crested the hill. In snow and ice.

Drive at a speed where you can control your car.

Don't hit ****

They were going too fast, but it sure as hell wouldn't hurt to put something on the other side of the hill. Just a few more cones or something.
