The bottom section of the pan is made of a stronger material (forget what is exactly though) so it's harder to crack open like that.
I feel your pain on the oil pan too, I've slayed a couple of them myself

damn
I'm really stretching my luck thin, just the other day I was in a construction zone, raised manholes and no signs, I am lucky I hit nothing (its a big thing to me because I do have a skidplate sitting here.. not on the car
)
