In this rather unusual followup to the bizarre limousine crash in upstate New York CBS commentators have no conclusive breakdown of exactly how the decedents met their demise in the collision.
Instead, they note how few limousines are thoroughly equipped with seatbelts, then turn to arguably unrelated scenarios of rear seat passengers in more commonplace passenger vehicles not wearing safety belts during an accident.
After showing some video footage of people jostled around in the back of vans sans seat belts, at 4:06, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King states:
“Because when you look at that van, er, limo, … it seems pretty much intact, so you’re thinking how many people could die.. but when you look at that video [mentioned above] you see the neck snapping that way, and we still don’t know exactly how they died, but when you see the neck snapping that way, you can understand why the death toll would be so high…”
Two days later CBS broadcasts an interview of the limousine driver’s remarkably composed wife, yet the specifics of fatalities remain a mystery.
