Many survivors of Saturday’s plane crash have a surprising pattern of spine injuries that shows how violently they were shaken despite wearing seat belts. But things could have been worse and being strapped into stronger seats still helped lessen the injuries.
A fatal shuttle bus collision in San Francisco has prompted a state lawmaker to try to prevent such accidents in the future.
The bus, which collided with a big rig on Thursday morning, killing one of the passengers on board, is not required to have seat belts because it carries more than 10 passengers.
For the next two weeks, 140 Bay Area law enforcement agencies will be joining the California Highway Patrol in its statewide effort to target those not buckling up.
