It is proven that seatbelts when used properly reduce the number of serious traffic injuries by 50 percent and fatalities by 60-70 percent. That's a major increase, that I'd say is well worth wearing your seatbelt. Your a damn moron!

please don't undercut the fact that the chance of survival is greater by wearing your seatbelt. Seatbelts are the law for starters, everyone should wear them. Secondly, for someone to choose not to at least guard their life with any available resource is just plain foolish. Life is precious, as I am finding out today as Susan Morris is the first mother of any of my friends to pass in such a violent manner as this accident was. The boys are taking it quite hard Susan, friends such as myself are truly saddened by your departure and pray for you to find comfort and peace at last. We pray for the family of the second victim and hope she is finding peace from this world as well.
Too many times people get in their car, and neglect to just think about what could happen. You may be a great, accident free driver, but don't under estimate the other guy.
I hope this reminds a few to buckle up, seat belt usage is higher now than previous years, every accidental death on the roads serves not as just a loss, but a learning tool or reminder that we must be aware of our safety and those around us when traveling. The holidays are coming, regretfully, the accidents on our roads is only going to increase as we approach a new year. Don't be a victim, be safe and always use your seat belt.
R.I.P Susan, we will all miss you.

I know that seatbelts save lives. but if you are calling any of the two women who died a moron, you must have no idea how the families are feeling. The families do not have to hear this AT ALL. Both of the ladies were someones mother, grandmother and a wife. This can happen to any one of us while behind the wheel, people also die in car accidents when wearing sealtbelts, so would you call them morans also?

I am a family member of Sues and I totally agree with you her two boys are taking this hard and it is only get harder with the holidays just around the corner. All we can do is be there for them. I was shocked to her the news when I got the call.

Some people(such as myself) have more fear of getting trapped in a car that is on fire from having a seatbelt on than dying another way in an accident.
We all have our little demons we carry inside our head.

My condolences to the family and friends.
i am sorry for your loss.

I grew up and went to school with Wes... My father was friends with both of his parents. Both boys lost their father to a massive heart attack when they were children.. and now they lost their mother... their best friend.... My heart breaks for Sue's family as well as for Ms. Bashores family. Please remember the victims family and friends read these comments... just because this didn't directly effect you, it effected someones WORLD. Sue was a mother and a grandmother... she lived a hard life but raised her sons to strong men all by herself. We need to remember no one in his world is better than another...

Morans...huh? Seatbelts HELP save lives. My theory, do as you will, it will clarify at the time of the accident. Another tragic loss of life under any circumstances.

ST-its GMC very well said.... and i think instead of people doggin on them about not wearing their seatbelts they should think about how THEY ARE NO LONGER WITH US. Its too late for the should haves or would haves. Unfortunately this story will probably get worse, but its too late now. we need to remember the good times.

First and foremost my comment to whomever chose to call me names....A sure sign of ignorance, and the lack of confidence in what you are saying, is to resort to name calling. Second, I just merely stated that if they had their seatbelts on it MIGHT have saved their lives....do you know without a doubt that if these women had their seatbelts on it would have saved their lives??? To blindly believe all that you are told means that you are a follower not a leader therefore it is easy to lead you to wherever the leader may want to take you.

I do not mean to diminish the fact that these two people passed and my heart grieves for their family.

This post should be filled with heart felt messages and condolences for the families. Shame on you people for name calling and blaming seatbelts for a loss of life. Yes we should all protect our selves behind the wheel but this isn't the time for a seatbelt lecture. When it is our time to pass on No seatbelt or any other form of protection can prevent it. Miracles happen everyday and people survive bad accidents regardless of whether they were wearing a seatbelt or not because that was the intended out come. Unfortunately it was their time to pass on. None of us know why these things happen this way but there is ALWAYS a reason. As painful as it may be it is a part of life. These 2 women had families and friends who are heart broken right now. We all have to know in our hearts and believe that seatbelt or no seatbelt the out come would have been the same. It is not for us to question what has happened or appoint blame or argue what if... It is our job to try and comfort those whose lives have been affected by this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to Wes,Jay and the rest of the friends and families of both victims. May God Bless You and comfort You in this very difficult time.

You sir, need to get a life. This is not a discussion where we need some dumb racist moron coming in and acting like a fool. This is a serious tragedy and deserves nothing more than respect. If you have nothing to contribute that can qualify as heartfelt and sensible, then please don't comment. The elder woman shouldn't be in ahome, you should be in a mental facility.

I don't blindly believe, I've experienced it, time and time again. Also I don't know the intricate details of this tragedy to make the determination of whether or not the individuals would have survived had they worn their seat belt. It's a tragic loss and your comment was uncalled for. I am very sorry for the families of both.
