Minor injuries? Wow, looking at that, I'd assume death.

All Class A's with the possible exception of Prevost are not designed with any crash resilience and are not tested by the NHTSA. If you climb around underneath the front end of your Class A you will find a lot of air and not much to stop intrusion into the passenger compartment.
In this accident to have total separation of the body and chassis indicates very poor engineering, shoddy materials, horrible construction methods, and no or little consideration for passenger safety. I wouldn't be surprised to see a recall of all these coaches from the NSTB based on the type of failure, if there's no undue political or industry interference.
Safety in most of the Class A's manufactured are at best a minor consideration. I think the Super C has the most inherent safety features. Slow down when things start going bad the 10 minutes you were trying to save will seem like a pretty stupid goal if you have an accident.
