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.
#savedbythebelt Last night the driver of this vehicle escaped serious injury because he was wearing his seatbelt. You can see by the pics how violent this collision was, yet the driver survived. Without a seatbelt this crash most likely would not have been survivable. #buckleup pic.twitter.com/Gqbz9FdWtS— NHP Southern Command (@NHPSouthernComm) December 20, 2019
