FWIW the goofy explosion obsessed dorks at "Mythbusters" were convinced the
drive-shaft pole vault was a near impossibility - maybe if the universe
aligned just right things could go bad but nothing like people claim in
urban legends... More like ripping through the floor into the passenger
compartment and even that would take just the right set of crazy
circumstances. Given how many u-joints fail every year, you have to believe
that's true - if it could happen that easily, automakers would have been
sued into oblivion by now and then would have redesigned all driveshafts to
be contained or caged.
On that topic, a big dump truck with a 2 part driveshaft threw one out at
highway speed in front of my parents last month - my father said he could
practically count the splines as it tomahawk-ed over their car, said it was
a horrifying near death experience.
