Sure, government mandated safety features probably did much to help this guy survive the mess he got himself into, but a slight change in the variables could have changed the outcome all too easily; there's just the smashed up body of what used to be a nice car right now, rather than someone else's body being carted off in an ambulance. Once the bumps and bruises are tended to, the police should apply the appropriate motor vehicle violations to this guy, as well as to all the others involved in this lunacy.
first of all i understand what your saying, but keep in mind, although he was %100 at fault for being a dumb ass and going to fast, driving faster then he should have, keep in mind the speed limit on the road was 55 mph. He knows he could have died and was lucky. The kids ego got in the way, hes lucky. BUT...everyone makes mistakes.
