Saab driver saved by moose-proof roof

Berkeleyside reports that Jerry Holl of Berkeley escaped with no injury when a huge limb from an oak tree fell on his car:

Jerry Holl was backing his car up in front of his home on Spruce Street Tuesday evening when Wham!, a huge limb from an oak tree fell on his car. Luckily, Holl was not hurt and made his way out of the passenger door.

To quote one of the commenters to the story at Berkeleyside:
"His Saab's moose-proof roof supports saved him! It's no joke - car/moose collisions are a big problem in Sweden and Saab engineers it's windshield and roof to withstand them."

I prefer this kind of Oak on my Saab.
