Note how the roof didn’t cave in, the understructure did. Modern safety engineering favors a strong roof and roof pillars, and lots of crumple zone around the passenger space. Here’s a good example.

An electric eye like on garage door openers would have kept it from getting that high.

The damage was photoshopped. The bar across the top has a kill switch for the lift motor.

When I was a kid, my uncle was showing slides that he had obviously taken while flying in a passenger plane.
This was in the '50s, when most people hadn’t yet taken a trip on a plane.
His next-door neighbor–who wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer–asked, “Did you take those pictures from a plane?”.
My uncle’s sarcastic response was, “No, Gladys, I was standing on my tip-toes”.
