...Getting my foot run over by a station wagon that is.

No broken bones.
No big impressive bruise.
Didn't even hurt that much.
I've had more pain from being stepped on by a woman in heels.
Kinda disappointed really.

Well depending on how stiff the tread pattern of the tire is, I would expect actual pressures of >100psi. Now depending on the actual size of the heel print those pressures could exceed a ton/psi.
