  1. From the damage to the car, it looks like he may have survived had he been wearing a seat belt. He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT

  2. @DL you are making an unfair assumption. You might want to think about taking a minyan to the niftar’s kever to ask mechila:

    Alarmingly, it is not uncommon for seat belts to fail. According to the NHTSA, approximately 3 million injuries and 40 thousand fatalities are reported each year from seat belts that fail to perform as expected during motor vehicle collisions. During rollover accidents, failed seatbelts are one of the leading causes of serious injury or death. Perhaps one of the most disturbing factors about these types of accidents is the fact that they are completely unnecessary and wholly preventable.

    How can a seatbelt fail? Here are some of the most common factors:

    Retractor failure – A seat belt retractor is where the belt feeds from and is responsible for locking up during sudden stops. If the retractor malfunctions for some reason, the passenger will not receive the protection needed to prevent serious injury during a car accident.
    Latch failure – A seat belt latch is the contact point between the buckle and the actual belt itself. When the latch malfunctions of comes undone with applied force, this could mean serious injury for a passenger during a car accident
    Spooling – Spooling takes place when an excessive amount of the seat belt feeds out, which means that there is too much belt to adequately restrain the passenger during a collision. The lack of adequate restraint could result in serious — or even fatal — injuries during a vehicle collision.

  3. stop sounding like kofer by saying stuped things that IF he would of warn a seat belt…
    you probably also hold that no one would of died from corona if everyone would of warn a mask and hashem was teaching us to allways be hygiene . no your stuped hashem has his plan and we only know after 120 what the plan is and was and will be . i have a freind that had a similar crash and the only way he survived was that he didnt have a seatbelt so hashem controlls everything not us and of course we have to do hishtadles and wear seatbelts but to say that if he would of warn a seat then he would of survived is stuped

    • Your message might HAVE (no, not might OF) come across clearer and people may take it more seriously if you knew how to spell. (You can WARN ppl. of the hazards of a seatbelt not WORN)
