RE: My uncle's accident
I have seen many cars with that type of damage from severe collisions where the windshield pillar is bent back from the force of the impact and the frame and floor buckles under the crush load bending at the "B" pillar between the doors because of the loss of ridged structure around the sunroof opening, but I have never seen a Benz damaged this way. If a Benz was damaged that severely, any other car would likely have not allowed survival for the occupants.
Your picture is proof of the main reason I own a Mercedes. The quality problems may be annoying, but safety has always been the design area I pay the most attention to.
BTW: The speedometer appears stuck at 120 kph. Were they going that fast when the instrument panel lost power?

Law-makers are supposed to regulate in the interest of the public as opposed to regulating in the interest of the regulated party.
If it says Pratt and Whitney on the outside it better say Martin Baker on the inside.
