Saab Damaged beyond recognition - The aftermath of a horrific car accident on the highway

Saab, a Swedish car manufacturer, is known for its durable and safe cars. It is no surprise that a Saab car was able to save the lives of a mother and son involved in a horrific accident.

Damian Koman and his mother were driving on a highway near Berlin when Damian fell asleep at the wheel. The car, a Saab 9-3 2.0 Biopower, was travelling at a speed of 120 km/h and accelerated to 140 km/h before crashing and rolling over multiple times before coming to a stop about 100 meters away.

The accident could have been fatal, but Damian and his mother survived. However, they sustained multiple fractures and injuries that require significant medical attention and rehabilitation. Fortunately, Damian is already in Poland and is on the road to recovery.

The response from the Saab community was overwhelming, with donations pouring in from all over the world. A fundraising page was set up on the Polish humanitarian donation site Pomagam.pl to facilitate donations.
