Given the destruction of the E for some reason I was expecting the R to look a lot worse than it did.

I think he was pushing 100 when he hit the e320...I saw a chevy cruze get tboned like that at 45mph and it looked about the same afterwards. I am surprised it did not shear in half. The R held up well for sure tho.

I'm guessing the driver of the E-Class wasn't wearing a seatbelt, hence the ejection. A co-worker survived a similar accident in a tinfoil Chevy, albeit with some pretty serious injuries. See pics: Serious Vehicle Accident U.S. 395 Airport Road in Minden - KTVN Channel 2 - Reno Tahoe News Weather, Video -
