    No doubt Saabs are safe and a serious factor as to me owning them. Yet we should be careful not knowing impact speeds/angles let alone the exact incident. Previous photo shows the Ford crumbling nicely, add lack of Info. Was the driver ‘drunk’ – in accordance with the laws of which country? It also doesn’t necessitate that a drunken driver causes every accident. In all I’m huge on car safety but all accidents from vehicle to aviation require more analysis. A simple blog relating to old ready-to-scrap Saabs as per the Top Gear drop a 1980s Saab vs BMW tells us more! Anyhow a good read but more data and analysis is needed!
