When the nightly news features a story about a fatal car accident they usually leave out footage of the deceased, using shots of the crashed vehicle for dramatic effect instead.
But a fatal accident that recently occurred on the 5 freeway in Los Angeles couldn't really be edited for TV and still tell the full story, because the driver's body was flung up onto a freeway sign for all to see.
The driver, who wasn't wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the car and sent flying up on to the Colorado St. freeway sign 20 feet above, and it took a fire crew three hours to get the body down. In the news report below, the body is shown from a distance, and is covered by a sheet.
It may seem cheesy to push the old "buckle up before you drive" message, but horrible accidents like this one show us how important it is to strap in and stay safe while driving, especially during the holiday season.
