I saw three of them leave the ground for sure.

Considering the high speed, I would've thought the 60-mph offset crash would've been a much worse for the last generation model. Search the offset crash for a Dodge Neon on YouTube (pretty much same class of car) and it looks like it does a lot worse at the much slower speed of 35-mph.
