When I see police speculate that someone wasn't wearing a seatbelt, I can't help wondering if there was ever a more thorough investigation by independent professionals. Folks would be surprised to see how often those steps show that someone was in fact wearing their seatbelt, but something went wrong. Did it break? Did it come unlatched? Did the seat assembly come loose? Did it fail to lock? Likely or not, someone losing their life demands every possible step to look into these possibilities. That's why I find that crashes like this are better off in the hands of more experienced and dedicated professionals.
