    Why don’t from now on, in EVERY CAR ACCIDENT REPORT VULTURE news reporters should state if a seat belt was worn! A man has passed, and the families if these folks read and watch the news. A deer is so unpredictable!! Judgmental asses.

    • no way

      Because they don't care. If you had a drink or you don't wear a skid lid you are responsible for the Iraqi war. To make a long story short people that make laws are MORONS. People can get a felony conviction because something might happen. Idiots.
