Vehicle occupants should always wear their seatbelt because this tool can save them from serious injuries and even death in the event of an accident.
A big rig driver and passenger who failed to do so ended up dead after being involved in a rollover accident which occurred in Mojave.
According to authorities, a 49-year old Long Beach man was driving a 2001 Volvo tractor-trailer along US 395. He was heading north when he suddenly lost control of the big rig, causing the vehicle to leave the roadway and roll over.
Both the driver and one of his passengers died. Meanwhile, another passenger identified as Nannette Barnes, 27, from Texas sustained critical injuries and was airlifted to Loma Linda Hospital.
