College Station Man Killed in Rollover Accident Despite Seatbelt Use
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 30-Jan-2012
A single-vehicle rollover accident left a College Station man dead, early Saturday morning, when he was ejected from his SUV despite wearing a seatbelt, police said.
The driver of the Jeep, identified as 23-year-old Tom Andrew Vestal, Jr. was traveling southbound on U.S. 183 near Hwy 138, when he lost control of the SUV and veered off the interstate.
The impact of the rollover caused Vestal to be ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the College Station rollover accident.
Despite the importance of wearing a seatbelt, sometimes, the same equipment designed to protect vehicle occupants can fail. A variety of factors can prevent seatbelts from restraining drivers and passengers during an accident, including; poor vehicle and equipment design and faulty materials that can rip, tear or latch improperly.
