Just saw this on the TV. Sandwiched between two cars. A kia hatchback. The woman is in Hospital. Sorry I do not have any more facts.

I am still shuddering at the thought of it.

That's one reason why I didn't buy a hatch.

Those Japanese Lunch-box's are just crumple zones for large vehicles...

Amazing she survived.

I think we will see it used as an advertisement.
Look at how the cabin stayed intact.

I used to own a GQ Nissan Patrol and was hit head on by a woman in a 3 door Holden Barina. Her car had crumple zones and air bags and was demolished front and rear (as car bounced off mine into a wall) but the cabin held up and, other than severe bruising, she had no other injuries.
My car ended up with the front wheel under the engine, pistons from my engine 50m up the road, the rear of my car up in the air due to contorsion of the chassis and also written off. I ended up with a fractured sternum and years of back pain (which, happily, now has subsided). Sometimes shear size doesn't always count for good design!

It appears that her vehicle was sandwiched between two trucks.

I think that she was lucky that the truck at the rear did have a bull bar. It appears the bar has spread the impact across the entire rear of her vehicle impacting the crush zone rather than the truck riding up over her vehicle and crushing it from the roof down.
