How sad. Why do people resist wearing seat belts? Recently, a friend, driving
with his wife, lost control of his SUV, went airborne over a steep drop, and
rolled several times,ending upside down in a small creek. During the rollover,
several items flew out of the vehicle, including his wife's glasses, one of
her shoes, a cell phone, etc. They were both wearing their seat belts, and ended
up being badly bruised. Otherwise, sadly, they would most likely have ended up
like these poor women. It's not rocket science. Wearing seat belts can save
lives.My heart goes out to everyone involved in this tragedy!
My sincere condolences to the Vasquez family.
A great but yet another SAD reminder of the benefits of wearing seat belts at
all times. I pray that the driver doesn't carry the guilt of that. All the
ladies were adults & made their own decisions as to not wear a safety
belt. >Morgan: Makes a valued comment also about tire safety! Prayers
for all involved, even the officers at the scene.
Notice I believe the left rear tire. Besides the sleep issue I would bet that
tire was under inflated. In sliding it pulled off the rim and when the rim hit
the pavement it dug in and over went the car. Seat belts, tires not inflated
properly and sleeping. Sorry for the family though.
Drowsy driving is a risk no one is exempt from. We're all human and we all
face fatigue. Most of us don't "all the sudden" get tired within 5
minutes, but our bodies slow down over time. Caution and planning are best.I feel for those lost, those who have lost, and this Mr. Vasquez who is
probably more guilt ridden than I can possibly understand right now. I hope all
can heal, push forward and be strong.It's times like this that
self-driving cars seem more and more appealing.
Tragic. This is what happens when you don't wear a seat belt. I
can't imagine what the driver is going through.
Condolences to the families. May God comfort and bless them at this time of
