It depends on what breaks first. The mounts holding it to the hinges, or the whole rest of the hood. Then there's the question of will it go right through your windshield or bounce off it and over the car. It all depsends on how you get hit, and how strong differnt parts of the hood & hinges & windshield are. I'll bet no two accecents would give the same results even if the hoods were exactly the same. I'd would say that there's definatly a greater risk of it coming through the window and right at you, but how much more of a risk is definatly up for debate.
