As someone whose life was clearly saved by a seatbelt while seated in the back
seat, buckle up. That also kept me from flying forward and impaling my wife
into the steering column worse; as it was, she broke her sternum badly. You
never know what's going to happen, might as well make a habit of protecting
yourself the best you can. Condolences to the deceased's family and
So tragic to lose someone that might have had little to no serious injury by
wearing a seat belt. Even in the back seat, passengers can be ejected in a
rollover accident. Please wear your seat belts.
