One of our regular readers here, Marc S, had an unfortunate encounter on Wednesday this week.
I’ll let him tell the story:
I wanted to let you know that I had Wednesday afternoon at around 13h45 a quite massive car accident here in Luxembourg with my 2003 Saab 93 Aero 2.0T.
A Mercedes hit me nearly frontal because the German driver thought that he was on a double-lane road which he definitely was not as I was driving on the other one.
As you can see from the pictures the impact was quite heavy, and the cars are apparently scrap as they both have a bend on the roof. But the most important thing is that we both are perfectly OK and not badly injured. I have only some minor burnings on my right hand from the airbag explosion and that was it.
The police stated that we were really really lucky running with such secure cars. By the way, my engine was still running and the radio still played J
PS: the only misery is that I wanted to keep my Saab until the new 95 SW is out and now I have to look for a car to bridge that time…
I’m sure you’ll all agree that it’s great news Marc is OK. The other driver as well. Such big accidents don’t always end so well, even in cars as safe as Saab and Mercedes Benz.
I hope a new vehicle comes your way soon, Marc.
