"Struck" in context

Struck is an event that occurs when an object collides with another object at high speed. When this happens, a forced transfer of momentum takes place, and the object that strikes the other object is usually the one bearing the brunt of the force. The force of the collision results in an impulse which can cause damage to either the object that was struck, or the object that did the striking. Depending on the speed and momentum of the objects, the consequences of being struck can be fatal. In order for the force of the collision to be further reduced, people wear protective clothing or take other safety precautions when they are in dangerous environments.
