Any news regarding the accident of actor Vikram Chatterjee and model Sonika Chauhan early morning today in Cal? Sadly the model passed away and the other is severely injured.

I am certain, these are cases of death caused by not wearing a seat belt!

I would think so. Especially because latest news that I just now read says that Vikram, the one driving, has not been that seriously injured, probably hinting at the fact that he was wearing a seat belt while Sonika who died probably wasn't. Also the airbags reportedly had not deployed, don't know but more information is crucial.

Spotted this right now on my way to home. I wonder why is he still driving it on road like this. Seems car has taken the hit from behind quite well as passenger compartment seems intact.

I'm reading in a (less known vernacular) news website about an accident in Munnar.

A family of 4 - husband, wife, two daughters aged 7 & 5 - from Bangalore were holidaying in Munnar. The husband is a cycling enthusiast, and was riding his bicycle in front and the wife was driving their car behind him. The article claims that the wife got distracted trying to change the CD in the in-car system and crashed into the cycle ahead.

It seems the wife retained sufficient presence of mind to load the husband into the car but she didn't know where the nearest hospital was; by the time she located one he was dead.

For those who can read Malayalam - the tragic story is reported here:

Sonika was not wearing a seatbelt (numerous reports quoting the cops on the same). Sure doesn't look like a crash where someone should have lost her life. Sad, but people just don't get the value of buckling up.

Nope, the airbags did not deploy.

One of the pics posted at this link clearly shows that the driver was buckled in, while the passenger wasn't. Not posting it due to obvious reasons.

Shame, really. Sheer waste of a promising life.

That seems to have been done later. Obviously whoever was driving had to take off the seatbelt to get out, secondly during an accident, the pretensioner pulls the seatbelt wearer in, and then after impact, the load limiter allows for a little slack so as not to place excessive force on the chest. After the load limiter has done its work, the entire seatbelt needs to be replaced because it will not buckle up like you see in the picture; with no slack. It won't even wind back into the B pillar. Either something went terribly wrong safety system wise in that Toyota, or none of the passengers were wearing seatbelts.

On the contrary, I think, given how the driver seat belt is still buckled, I would assume driver was sitting on it, rather than being belted up. A common practice in our country to silence the seat belt reminder.

Thinking out loud, during extraction, wouldn't the belt need to be cut or removed first? Why would someone put it back after getting the injured out?

Also, if the driver was responsible enough to wear a seat belt himself, he would have insisted for the passenger to do so as well. Just my opinion.

Your assumption is spot on. In our country for some reason wearing seatbelt is considered un-cool, un necessary & even demeaning.

Common sense has nothing in common with status, intelligence, education, upbringing, success, status, position/station in life.
All of us lack it at some time or the other, the really unfortunate ones lack it while they are driving/are being driven in vehicles.

Drove on Bangalore - Mangalore road today and on the way back from Yediyur just before Kunigal there was a road block. Apparently major accident with multiple vehicles and I saw at least 2 vehicle down by the service lane and 1 bike on the road. Did not stop as there were enough and more people around and also an i20 with a doctor sticker was parked. We had stopped for coffee at Swati and I was telling my better half that we should probably take Magadi & get home as I saw a lot of cars zip by with hardly any distance between them. Crazy how people just loose common sense when you see a few cars zip by or approach to overtake you.
