2008 auto deaths

car: 15,631
pickup: 5,025
SUV: 4,326

and that is just "car"....not "tiny car"

now it could be there are just that many more cars out there than SUVs...but have you ever see collision test between the two?...the SUV always wins, and it isn't even close

the driver of the SUV is always above the collision...the person in the car is flattened
