i almost died last night but mercedes saved my life

hey guys i just want to share with everyone my profound admiration for mercedes for being the safest cars. last nite i was driving at 70km/h and a guy out of nowhere came and hit on me from the right sending my car to the left (also because i turned the steering wheel left to avoid him). my car went straight into a curb, sending it flying into the air doing a 360 in the air, hit a post fell and rolled over once. i drive a w210 e200, the car is destroyed completely but me and my friends were able to get out alive with not even a scratch. if it wasnt for the car it would have been the end for me.

Holy Car Accident Batman!
That's a MAJOR car accident? And you took time to post the details online?
Bravo!
Good to hear you are alive and well.
Price of gasoline is going up and yes it's hurting my wallet, however, I thought
about MB engineering and the Safety Cage and I rethought it.
I think my physical life is more important than say, overspending and extra $1000a year.
Yes Mercedes Benz engineering is fantastic.

You are living proof!
Glad to see you and your friends are around.

What happened to the other car? Hope nobody's hurt. You should post your story in the MB Safety and testimonial forum.

thnks for the nice words i appreciate it it was really a life shaking experience. the other car just drove off so i suspect the driver didnt have a license and/or the car was stolen, something that is not so rare anymore.

thanks god we are all fine just a bit stiff around the neck today.....i will concider what you said about posting my story in the other forum but i think i will just copy paste it because i dont want to think again what happened to write it with more detail. i took some pictures of the car after the crash and man i felt my heart sink. windows broken, whole left side scratched and dented like hell as that is where the car landed, the front is completely destroyed with a huge dent on the right side where the car hit the post. however all the lights and switches were still working! even the immobiliser worked

Oh geez, I hate it when I hear people run off like that. I'm assuming no one was around to get the guy's plate numbers?
