Fenders begin wrapping themselves around the tree, forcing the rear parts to splay out over the front doors.

"Instinctively, you stiffen your legs for the jolt, but they snap at the knee joints. "During the third tenth of a second, your torso upright leaves the seat and broken knees ram into 'the dashboard. The steering wheel begins to collapse under your death gri|p, the steering column drives bo- ward your chest.

"In the sixth tenth, the force of impact has built up so great that your feet are ripped out of tightly laced shoes. The brake pedal shears off at the floorboard. The car frame buckles in the middle. Your head banks into the windshield. The rear wheels 1 , still spinning, fall back, digging into the earth. "And in the seventh tenth of the second, the whole car is distorted. Hinges riip.
