I was in a car accident several years back. We were hit from behind by a car going over 50mph while we were standing still. I wasn’t driving but the person who was started moving forward slowly when she noticed the car wasn’t stopping so it wasn’t from a dead stop. I had no injuries and was told it was because of the muscles surrounding my back and neck.

This reminds me of Flex Wheeler’s horrific car accident.

I doubt the guy would even be walking if he wasn’t wearing a suit of armor made of meat.

Neck brace but otherwise fine now (no long term injuries). It was a running joke when Unbreakable came out.

I have a friend who had a similar situation happened (5,6ish 200+) Except he was hit by a dump truck (not quite 50mph).
