Yes the driver would be messed up and there was more intrusion into the cabin than you would like to see. But consider this, the kid in the back would have survived and that is one of the worst possible crashed you could be involved in. I know mercedes made some safety upgrades between 1997 and 2000 so it could probable that this is an older w210 and a newer one would fair better. It is kinda scary for the w210 owner though, i was under the assumption that it would do much better than that.
Mercedes are like potato chips, you can't have just one.
