A broken sternum is not a minor injury. The 52 year old man is lucky he is not dead. His car was destroyed when it was struck by a vehicle nearly twice the weight of his SUV. No wonder the kid did not succeed in killing himself. The physics do not quite work. He also fled the scene without any regard for the injured 52 year old man. The man will be out of work until his sternum heals and now he will need to find a car to replace the one he lost. I feel sorry for the kid and his parents.
