Breaking News!

Just about an hour ago.. a Mercedes has collided with a semi-truck. It was dragged under the semi and been beat up pretty badly as you would imagine. The radio guy said remarkably its not a fatal accident... thought I would share this news.

If I find pictures of the scene... I will post them up.

it's not really the bad news some of us are after, but rather the survivability of our cars in such accidents - sort of gives us some justification for all that time and money put into our cars to keep them going - my Cdn$0.02

Thanks Paul! I just knew it had to be a W126, since the guy survived the accident.
