If this " incident " ( I won't use the other word ) goes to trial, the prosecution may have to call in a physics professional to gauge the impact point and how far the body was thrown. My guess is that the foot is close to the place of impact and how far the body was thrown can give a more accurate assessment of the speed of the car on impact.
( In racing circles, I have had seen too many of these types of death by impact. They often leave body parts in this manner )
