I dont know if you just being deliberately obtuse, or obtuse.
the speed of the car when it hits you is important, if it ran 10meters down a steep slope or 100 meters down a gentle slope is irrelevant to the energy it hits you with
pretty sure the kick is accelerating
So get a car on the flat. put the foot down then keep standing further away.
"Here we will take a look at the equation that allows us to solve for the final velocity when the object is constantly accelerating. That equation is:
This equation would read:
Final velocity equals original velocity plus acceleration times time."
