Rather embarrassing for the patrolman. Looks like he hit the smart pretty hard. The person in the smart was not hurt according to the film.

Would they have mentioned car brand if it had been a Toyota or Buick?
To some, the smart is in the same vulnerability category as a pedestrian, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, etc. So in the event of an accident with an average automobile, journalistic integrity dictates the difference be identified.

"Police cruiser hits pedestrian."

"Police cruiser hits motorcycle."

"Police cruiser hits bicyclist."

"Police cruiser hits smart car."

"Police cruiser hits Toyota Corolla."

You see the last headline lacks sensationalism.
