    They tested this on Myth Busters recently. They basicly came to the conclusion that the bullet must have hit a piece of the car and ricocheted into her head. When they tried the shot the bullet went through the back window, the head rest, and through the skull simulant. It actually pulled hair from the weave completely through the wound channel.
