At least it was up till last weekend. Lee rolled it and as the report says was lucky NOT to have been wearing his seat belt. He was thrown into the passenger seat which saved him as the drivers area was totally crushed.

The end for this car, Lee was a lucky boy

Glad he is ok- I'm sure his g/f's airbags protected him.

:o :(

As an aside, the seatbelt in my old car undoubtedly saved me when I rolled it, so things arent that clear cut in reference to wearing a seatbelt/or not.

Hope all survivors (:() make a full recovery from any injuries asap.

Keep it shiny side up people.

Not good Bren, hope everything works out OK.

Gary, sorry to hear about Lee but I can't think why he'd consider driving without a seatbelt when going fast enough to roll a car?

You know - some people just dont consider it necessary to wear a belt. I always put one on, but other don't.

That's what I was wondering? :blink:

Glad that he is ok though & Bren, good luck to you & Suz. Hope that her daughter recovers soon :thumb:
