    That is new information for me. Thanks. But I still consider roof as weakest part of a car structure with highest possibiliy of fatality in the event of heavy impact on it.

  • Amit Chhangani says:

    As a matter of fact, a lot of cars ARE designed to protect the occupants from injury or death when they turn turtle. Volvo cars, for example’s sake, feature high strength materials in their pillars and roofs so that it holds itself even if it lands on the roof in a high impact scenario.

  • Satish says:

    It is evident from the picture that the injury has happened because the car fell on the roof. No car in the world is designed to save occupants from accidental impact on the roof. Why cry for BMW?
