He braced for impact as the back of the truck collided into the beast leaving the inverted pear shape in its body. Santo grabbed the steering wheel trying to keep the force on his body to a minimum. Unfortunately, the impact was much greater due to the velocity and inertia of hitting a solid object regardless if it gave way or not.
The thief was still thrown back into the seat and ricocheted out the windshield which was only cheaply fixed by the repair man. He tumbled over and over on the ground until he was laying flat on his stomach aching all over. It took him a second to realize what happened until he tried to get up.
Santo got to at least one knee when he noticed the glass sticking out of his clothes and skin. Blood came with the cuts as he pulled some of them off. The launch did more damage than necessary but no bones were broken. The cuts and some pulled muscles weren't enough to immobilize the thief, but the going was slow at first. Santo then moved slowly toward the truck to see what the damage was.
