We all know that both the Classic and the 2G are very strongly built. Between that and use of the seat belts, that's why 2 people lived through a bad crash in a 2G in Kansas....................
A woman and a girl from Topeka escaped serious injuries Monday morning when the vehicle they were in hydroplaned, left the roadway and overturned on the Kansas Turnpike near Bonner Springs, authorities said.
The crash was reported at 9 a.m. Monday on Interstate 70 on the turnpike.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora was eastbound on I-70 when the driver lost control and struck the barrier wall. The car then went into the ditch and overturned.
The driver, Heather Renae Garey, 47, and a passenger, identified only as a 9-year-old girl, were transported to Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., with suspected minor injuries, the patrol said. Both were wearing their seat belts

Its sad that an already rarer car just became rarer, too
You're totally NOT wrong with your statement. Being as strong as they are is just an added bonus. Loved these cars when they came out originally and will probably drive one until I cant drive anymore. Still, the strength of these vehicles is most impressive.
