A 20 year old man was driving recklessly, without a seat belt, when he lost control of the vehicle.

Police say the Ford Focus rolled several times and ejected the driver up onto a Colorado Street Exit sign.

When I was younger I NEVER wore my seat belt. It took the sad passing of my girlfriend's cousin and his 2 year old son in a head on collision to change my mind. Now, it's not even a second thought. Seat belt. Click. Done.

Of course, seat belts will not prevent every accident from being fatal. But, this study from the Colorado State Patrol reveals that wearing your seat belt will increase your chance of surviving by 50%.



According to the ABC affiliate Eyewitness News 7 in Los Angeles, California Highway Patrol had to shut down all 5 lanes of southbound 5 Freeway in order to retrieve the body.
