Post Mercedes Engineering and Safety shone once again at the PA Turnpike massive pileup!

Several Mercedes crashed at the Pa Turnpike crash but one picture caught my attention - it is a R350 that hit the undercarriage of a truck and from the picture it once again proved the structural integrity and safety of Mercedes vehicles!

Hope the owner is safe and sound along with the other drivers in the pile up. From the pictures, it seems the car hit the undercarriage of the trailer with minimal frontal collapse.

Pure speculation.
I think would the Mercedes went under the side of the semi-trailer the damage to the top would be major.
Rear of the trailer per law has a bar that prevents smaller vehicles to go under.
To me looks like the impact to Mercedes come from different vehicle than the trailer it is close to.
Can't say for sure, but the first picture shows the semitrailer stopped on the road and the Mercedes stop at 90 degree next to FedEx
