Our technician failed to put oil in this car when it was serviced.
The driver said that the car jolted forward, causing her to sustain severe whip-lash, soft tissue injury.
I have been told that a car with an automatic transmission would stall and not jolt forward.

Hard to give a definite yes or no but engine should just quit and car coast to stop. The steering would become hard and the brakes may not work either.
