What Happens When a Shopping Trolley Hits a Wall at 72 MPH

By Andrew Liszewski on at

We’ve all had the occasional trolley collision while coming around a blind corner at the end of an aisle. But here’s what would happen if you were trying to speed through a supermarket at 72 miles per hour, got distracted by a free sample, and then slammed your trolley head-on into a concrete wall.

This unusual crash test was conducted by Switzerland’ Dynamic Test Center who are known for their unorthodox simulations. Ever wondered what would happen if a fully loaded tractor ploughed through stopped traffic? They’ve tested that. Or just how much damage is caused when two skiers collide? They’ve tested that too.
