Commentary on Rollover Accident on FM 1485 in Montgomery County

It wouldn't be surprising if the victim here wasn't wearing a seatbelt, since that is often the reason someone is thrown from a vehicle. But over the years, I noticed the numbers simply don't add up. Could it be investigators are missing something here?

With all of the people thrown from their vehicles, police practically always say they had no seatbelt on. Yet with studies showing how most people do wear their seatbelts, it's obvious that not all of those conclusions were accurate. It's possible, then, for something like this to involve a defect. Whether a seatbelt broke, failed to stay secure, or a whole seat assembly failed, these manufacturing issues have caused serious incidents before, and they certainly will continue to.

Regardless of whether or not this possibility is likely, folks should learn as much as they can so they know what investigators need to look for. The article below speaks on this more thoroughly.
