In the years I have been a fireman I have yet to see this type of accident. If a person hit a tree, pole or other object, it almost always included some part of the front crash points. In the case of a tree, pole or other object coming in from the side, they usually crush some part of the A,B,or C pillar, hopefully providing some sort of protection. More importantly, in any crash be it a MINI , BMW, MB, or Dodge ram, against a tree, the tree almost always wins. To me this is a meaningless test and would not stop me from buying a F30 or even other cars on the list.
