Three teens wreck 2010 Mustang GT on test drive

Quote:
According to a report on Mustang Blog, 3 teens have managed to horribly wreck a 2010 Ford Mustang GT. Apparently the teens were given the keys to the car for a test drive and during the run, they crashed it. Looking at the speedometer picture, it seems they were doing at least 100mph before they got into the mishap. Now here’s the amazing part. None of them were wearing seat belts, resulting in them being flung out of the car. Now you would think this is an instant death, but no! They actually survived with only a few minor scratches.

Looking at the cabin, you can see it is still pretty much intact and has proven its worth according to safety standard boards. The car was given the Five Star Safety Rating award, and this incident seems to prove it. Even though this story is still unconfirmed, the evidence adds up and the story checks out.

You can't go by what the speedo says. It could be on anything at this point. If the wheels come off the ground it could easily max out if something sticks the throttle on the engine.

Speculating that they would have lived had they worn belts and stayed in the cabin is absurd. I was an EMT for years - I've seen cars less crashed than this that were fatal. You never know with the many injuries that can happen, such as a head injury.

I would NOT have wanted to be in that car, belted or not.

Something somewhat similar happened around here with a Challenger. Someone took one for a test drive..hit 100mph on a road real close to me and t-boned a couple in another vehicle. They died.
The salesman was in the backseat telling the guy to slow down, btw.

Wow. I wonder if there is more to that story, I don't know of any dealership that would let three teens test drive a car like that without a salesman present.

Regading the speed, I've said for years, all vehicles should really have a 'black box' like airplanes that captures EVERYTHING from speed, rpm, accelerator/brake usage, all of it.

Regarding them surviving without seatbelts, they are VERY lucky and that is VERY rare. I'll still wear mine every time.

True that. I'm still wondering why they let me at 20 test drive cars when I was in the market.

And that black box idea is pretty cool. I never even really thought about that.
