You need to specify decceleration. Insufficient information.See below.

#### Explanation:

If the car was at 85 miles/hr, and hit something to stop in a time t sec, you would get launched, the distance depending on your weight and the time t secs.

This is an application of Netwon's Law

So the question is how fast did the car stop and what is your weight.
