Looks almost fake however it is a straight shot from the roadway...curb and median lift and speed might just have done it. here's the road view pics from Google Maps for 17th Street Dental...319 17th St A, Santa Ana, CA 92706
We have a friend going to scan the area and should have something soon.
In the meantime...here are some views from the intersecting road and a msmac3D prelim recon at 47 MPH

Here is a rough cut Preliminary msmac3D simulation reconstruction of the launch of the 2009 Nissan Altima simply using google maps for distances and an assumption for the launch angle (3' rise in approximately 3' lateral) of the median. This is at 47 MPH

and here's some security footage of the launch

The following is a preliminary msmac3D reconstruction of the 17th Street Dental Office Crash. We got a preliminary cloud scan of the median and the front of the office and found approx 54 MPH matches the impact location on the building. The large amount of displaced dirt and curb damage may make the actual speed somewhat higher.
