Initially I believe they hadn’t ruled out foul play so I’m glad (in a way) that someone lost their life on their own terms rather than at the hands of a murderer.


Hey Just: “appears to be a suicide. Don’t forget to buckle up before committing suicide.


Seat belts, seat belts, seat belts.

C’mon people, what is so difficult?


Numerous news outlets are reporting this as a suicide. Obviously the driver wasn’t concerned about wearing his seat belt. Very, very sad.
