EDIT: I'm not sorry, actually. I don't care what anyone else thinks, these "news bits" are ridiculous, at best. They serve to perpetuate a rumor started by people who drive SUV's and insist that the laws of physics somehow stand in their favor during an accident, without ever looking at the big picture of how an SUV reacts in different situations compared to smaller cars, which, in many cases, are safer.
