A few years back I took a drivers' improvement class due to too many speeding tickets. (not my finest moment) In this class I learned that "there is room to survive inside" Being ejected from a vehicle is the worst scenario. Please young people: buckle up. This sounds like it was a survivable accident if everyone would have remained inside.
