Safety’s always been a priority of the Saab brand. The 9-3 and 9-5 ranges all have 5-star Euro NCAP ratings and in this case, it’s saved someone’s life, though he’s still in dangerous waters.
The young, 17 year old driver collided with an SUV a few days ago in Michigan. No-one’s clear on what happened other than both drivers sustaining critical injuries. The good thing is that the relatively smaller sedan, a Saab
9-5 9-3 (thanks Greg) by the looks of things, survived the collision with a larger SUV in seemingly good shape, and the inbuild safety from Saab most likely saved this young guy’s life.
As you can see from the photo below, the SUV is in a fair mess whilst the Saab looks in fair shape from the firewall back. Here’s hoping both drivers are OK in the long run. The SUV was being driven by a young 21 year old woman.
Thanks Ted for the tip.
