M-B crashes

I was poking around on my old computer and found some pictures of a couple of wrecked Mercedes cars. I don't know anything about the crash but I'll bet the drivers felt something.

I don't know anything about the respective wrecks. I'd say while they were banged up, the SLK driver and or passenger came out fairly well. The CLK had guard rail intrusion into the passenger compartment and anybody in the back seat was hurting, if they lived.

That looks more like an E to me, not a clk.

My i hope there was something seriously wrong with that e class, that acccident didn't look to severe judging by the front of the car, but there is no way it should be ripped in half like that.

Mercedes are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

It is all about speed, allmost everybody in here thinks that MB are like tanks, but the reality they are just cars, like most other manufactures.
20 years ago MB was way safer than most out there but today it has shifted, not that MB is not a safe car but the rest is catching up.

I still feel safe in my MB, and i would rather have an accident in the MB than a Huyndai, I believe some of the cars are manufactured to get good ratings in crash tests. Not like MB, Volvo, Saab to mention some, they are researching several real life crashes and using the info to make safer cars.
