I saw this story in my news feeds just before Christmas, but didn’t think too much more of it. A guy in a Honda is said to have had a seizure. He crashed into a Saab and then his car went into the Charles River and he had to be fished out of the freezing water by some bystanders.
I was reminded of this story again today as I received an email from Peter L, and the Saab involved in the crash (a 9-5 as it turns out) belonged to the mother of a friend of his.
The Honda rear-ended the Saab pretty badly, as you can see in the photo. The Saab had a dog in the back (looks like a cocker spaniel!) and of course, the driver in the front. Miraculously neither of them suffered any major injury at all.
No matter how well your car’s designed and built there will be circumstances that it can’t withstand. At least with a Saab in the garage you’ve raised the bar as to how bad those circumstance have to be.
