Jean, It appears that because the tire took the impact the car was pushed down and the hood's crumple zone worked as it should. Years ago the hood would have been pushed into the window, without the crumple zone, and therefore risked other injuries for the driver. Once the energy of the vehicle came in contact with the jeep the front of the Nissan likely was pushed down towards the ground further ensuring the force on the tire rather the bumper. The issue here is a miss match of height. Impacts of this type are designed to damage the vehicle not the driver. So the impact can always look worse in lower speeds. Just another point of view.

it would be nice if speed limit signs were placed in the downtown area like 20 or 25 m.p.h. just an idea. that damage tells me that someone was going a little fast or the car was made from paper!
