14. When a large heavy truck collides with a passenger car, the occupants of the car are more likely to be hurt than the truck driver. Why?

 

Due to having large mass, the momentum of truck is large than that of cat. When a large heavy truck collides with a passenger car, large momentum of the truck is transferred to car and small momentum of car is transferred to car and small momentum of car is transferred to truck. So, the occupants of the car are more likely to hurt than the truck driver.
