Master T-shirt technician and good friend of TS, Ivan, has sent me this image and story from Hungary, where he lives.
One of his friends, in a Saab 9-5 TiD SportCombi, was involved in an accident last night. A drunk driver in a Suzuki Swift tried an illegal overtaking move, causing a partial front-on collision. The Saab is a write-off.
Ivan’s friend had his wife and two kids in the car. The only injury reported in the Saab was the wife suffering a cracked sternum. She’s under observation, but is going to be OK. Everyone else was unhurt and all the doors on the Saab except for the driver’s door were opened OK.
The driver in the Suzuki was very seriously injured, he may not survive, and it sounds as if his passenger was seriously injured as well.
1. DON’T drink and drive
2. Always drive a Saab
No car’s perfect when it comes to safety, but a Saab will protect you better than most.
