Fire/rescue cut the car up in order to get at the driver. Look at the nice clean cut of the roof in the 5th photo...

no car is safe after 80mph, dont understand why they make such high speeds possible (over 100mph) when they cant protect the passengers at those speeds!

most crash tests are done at less than 30MPH as well!!!!!!!!!!
Oh please, don't blame high speeds, blame the driver. Take a look at the road and tell me that the road and its conditions were optimal for high speeds.

Not too surprising that he walked away, look at the driver's seat, nothing protruded into his "space" the violent deceleration would pose the most danger to the driver in that crash. Not so much safe as lucky.
