You could be in a tank. If you hit an immovable object at 95 mph, you're toast. As a general rule you are right, but it is possible to engineer lighter cars with controlled crushability that protect occupants better than the behomeths built when we were kids. Seatblets and airbags help too. But if you're born to hang, you'll never drown.<quoted text>
The trouble with most, if not all, late model cars is that the body (and what little frame there is) are eggshells as a result of the manufacturers having to keep down weight down in order to comply with U.S. government fleet miles per gallon requirements.
If it were not for the airbags even more would be dying in seemingly surviveable accidents.
You want to survive an accident, then keep out of eggshells!

Stacy was my stepnice and we all loved her very much. She was like everyone said shy, quite, and very happy. She loved her family and was like a second mom to the 3 little ones. I am glad that they are to small to know what is going on so they do not have to feel the way we all do. She will be missed more then anyone can say. We all love you stacy. To the boy that was driving time will only tell.
