A 40mph crash destroys half the front end. At 120mph, its
10X the energy. I am surprised there is still some resemblance
of a cabin left.

christ, that's a mess. Is that a prop shaft embedded near the passenger headrest, and the back-box of an exhaust, too?

i'm not a crash expert, but whoever was in that MB is toast, I reckon.

There's a similar crash on YouTube; a silver C-Klasse has crashed head on with a truck in Italy. The Mercedes driver is dead.

No car can provide 100% protection.

The debris inside would just be thrown in there by the tow truck driver. It doesn't mean it was in the cabin as a result of the crash. At that speed and with that much damage to the structure the occupants probably died. It would be a surprise if they survived that.
