Train Crash

There are nearly 3,000 incidents at railway crossings every year and when an 8,000-ton train hits a much smaller car, it's no contest. Using extreme experimentation, the Smash Lab team tests an idea that could save hundreds of lives involving giant airbags mountain to a cow catcher on the front of a train designed to push cars to safety. And as always, the results are in exquisite high definition.
