Default 04 Saturn Vue Rollover crash w/ pictures

I was involved in a crash on 6/11 with my 2004 Saturn Vue. The car in front of me was slowing down to stop and I was slowing down to stop. The car behind me slammed right into me backending me at approx 50 to 55 mph. I must have clipped the back corner on the passenger side of the car in front of me and I was then sent flipping, rolling three times. A car going in the opposite direction also hit me at one point. I came to rest upright. Of course I only remember slowing down and feeling the impact of the car hitting me from behind. I was wearing a seat belt and my air bags did deploy. All my windows were blown out (except for the sunroof), every exterior panel of the car is damaged, my door was bent inwards, but I survived with only black & blue marks on my left side and stiff, sore muscles.

I didn't like my Saturn's quirks - like the rumble strip noise - but I think my Saturn vue might have saved my life. I just wanted to share my photos to show how my vue faired in a rollover crash.
