Low Speed Crashes Can Still Cause Serious Injury

Especially if occupants are unrestrained.  A vehicle crash at 19mph (30 kmh) has the same impact on its occupants as a fall from a 3rd story balcony.  (Click link for video.)

This video footage may be dated, but the basic laws of physics have not changed.  Force still equals mass times acceleration.
