    Was that on the John Dillinger proving grounds? I can't figure out why the cars were driven like that.

    I believe It was In the late sixties or early seventies Mercedes used volunteers to crash their vehicles for evaluation of the crashworthiness. I was told the volunteers were prisoners, who if survived, had their sentences commuted. There is a partial video on u-tube
    under unusual crashes.

    Hence the term "crash test dummies".
