SAAB Safety

A Saab 9-3 SS mounted a curb, flipped, and struck a crossing guard

Saab 9-3 crash

At the beginning of this week in the Canadian city of London, there was a strange accident involving one Saab 9-3 SportSedan. According to local eyewitnesses, A black Saab 9-3 sits on it’s roof in the intersection of Andover and Viscount.

Fire crews had to free the driver by cutting the seatbelts that held her in place. The driver and a child from the Saab were also taken to hospital, but they have no injuries.  The car has a built in roll cage for that purpose. Any of the new cars today would get crushed. When a saab is dropped on it’s roof you can still open all the doors.

A policeman friend of the family commented on our choice of cars years ago that in all his years of being a traffic officer, whenever he’d found a saabinvolved in an accident he had tested the theory, and every time, every door opened.

Middlesex London Paramedic service crews then transported her and another woman to hospital.  The other woman was a crossing guard. Why it happened still isn’t known but tire tracks in the grass tell part of the story the car was headed North on Andover approaching Viscount in South London.

It then left the road going across a sidewalk before hitting an embankment and flipping over. Witnesses say that’s when Ruth was hit sending her flying.
