LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada Highway Patrol says a driver escaped serious injury during a violent crash thanks to their seat belt.

The agency tweeted out a picture of the aftermath of the crash, which happened on the I-15 near Lamb Boulevard on Dec. 18.

Troopers say they believe the driver most likely would have died had he not been wearing a seat belt.
