That was a great man. And just because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt, doesn't mean he wouldn't of died anyways. I saw his body today, and it appeared as if his neck was broken. That could of happen just by the hit. He might of still died even if he was wearing a seatbelt. And it wasn't all his fault. The driver of the other car has some blame, too. Mr. Brewis and his family do not appreciate all of the blame being put on him.

R.I.P. Mr. Brewis
A great man.

He always wore a seatbelt. Haven't you ever heard of inertia unlatching?? The force of the accident makes the latch unbuckle. This happens much more than people realize, but the car companies don't want you to know.
