Must have been a pretty damn good speed. My guess is 70 kph judging by the damage.

Tur i oturen: Tre lätt skadade efter olycka vid Centralstationen

Vid en trafikolycka på lördagsmiddagen slog en 40-årig man runt med sin terrängbil

framför centralstationen. Vid olyckan skadades tre personer lätt, det blev kraftiga

trafikhinder vid bärgningen och räddningsinsatsen. Vid 12-tiden körde en 25-årig

smartförarinna vid Heilbronnergatan mot rött ljus vid Arnulf-Klettplatsen. Därvid

rammade hon en 40-årig mans Mercedes terrängbil, mannen talade högljutt om för

polisen att han körde mot grönt ljus i korsningen. Vid kollisionen välte terrängbilen

och kanade på taket tills den stod stilla. Föraren var oskadad, hans passagerare och

den olycksförorsakande och hennes medåkande fick lättare skador. De materiella

skadorna uppgår till c:a 45000 €. Vid bärgningen av fordonen måste körfilerna

stängas av helt i riktning Kriegsbergsgatan. Därvid uppstod trafikhinder.

Saturday around noon there was a traffic accident that saw a 40 year-old male driver’s SUV lying on its roof in front of the main train station. In the collision, three people were slightly injuredAround noon, a 25 year-old female smart car driver ran through a red light at Heilbronner Street onto Arnulf-Klett Place. There, her smart car rammed the Mercedes SUV of a 40 year-old man, who the police indicated was traveling through a green light.Through the force of the collision, the SUV ended up on its roof. The driver was uninjured; however, his female passenger and the person who caused the collision were slightly injured.Damages are estimated at 45,000 Euros. Until the vehicles were cleared away, the local roadways were totally blocked.

Bad smart car driver, running the red light, causing an accident! However, if the victim was driving a smart (for two people in vehicle) instead of a large SUV, there's a better chance they would have been missed. The probability of accident avoidance might have been better, too, assuming he was paying more attention.I wonder if the BMW in the background was thinking, "Typical MB. I could have avoided that."And to get one other thing off my chest, I'm glad to see the myth of driver superiority on other continents taken down a peg.

Thank-you, thank-you.An outstandingly excellent post. Those other (non-smart) folks insist on asking about crash safety, and I'd rank this pic as the single most succinct I've yet seen.And it even came with an explanation in English.Again, thanks so very much!:drive:

We've been keeping a binder in our smart car with information about it. And one of the questions we get asked the most is what would happen if an SUV hit it. We never thought about it the other way around ;) So now this picture has been added to our binder to help answer that question the next time.Tom

About 1 1/2 years ago, before I got my smart, my nephew mentioned an incident he saw west of Edmonton. A smart and a larger SUV had been involved in a collision. The smart was driven to the side of the road, so they could get the flatbed tow truck in to haul the suv away. Pity that he didn't get pictures. This was one the of the things that made me do more research on the smart as a replacement for my aging Toyota (which my neighbour squished a couple of month later, anyways)MG
