In this case, as with the beetle accident, they said the guy walked away from it.

I bought a Suzuki car because I wanted a car that was from Japan,only to find out a few weeks later I came across a tag that said Made in India.

Don't underestimate the "value" of inebriation in a MVA. An inebriated person tends to absorb the shock of a collision much better than a stiff sober driver.

Imagine those poor buggers who want a Japanese Toyota, only to find out it was made in SA. Or a German BMW, or a Mercedes etc.

It's a global market these days, where it was assembled doesn't matter, the technology, R&D etc. is still Japanese.

My Vitara was made in Hungary.
