    Apparently the CVPI modifications seem to work.

    Man overtakes patrol vehicle, dies in crash

    A Prescott man was killed when his sport utility vehicle struck the
    rear of a Department of Public Safety cruiser that was traveling on a
    freeway with its emergency lights flashing, authorities said
    Saturday.

    Gerry Howard, 61, was taken to John C. Lincoln Hospital-North
    Mountain, where he was pronounced dead, said Officer Steve Volden, a
    spokesman for DPS.

    Officer Randy Anglin, 36, a 12-year DPS veteran, was taken to the
    same hospital for treatment of head injuries that were not considered
    life-threatening, Volden said.

    The crash occurred about 11:30 p.m. Friday on Interstate 17, nearly
    two miles south of the Carefree Highway, while Anglin was driving
    north in the high-speed lane to answer a call near Anthem, Volden
    said.

    Anglin's Ford Crown Victoria was struck from behind by Howard, who
    was behind the wheel of a Ford Explorer, Volden said.

    Both vehicles eventually came to a stop without rolling over or
    without explosion.

    Critics have said the Crown Victoria is prone to explosion after rear-
    end impacts. But Volden said Anglin's car had been fitted with
    modifications.

    i wouldnt take this case as clear evidnce of the modifications working. in this crash the CVPI was struck while it was in motion whereas most (all?) of the other instances, where explosions occurred, were to stopped/parked CVPIs.
