I also ope that she pulls through with no long term injuries.

Another reason to WEAR YOUR SEATBELT! I find it hard to believe that a LEO would not be wearing their seatbelt. Then again there are a lot of people who don't.

BTW: I base my statement based on the article. It stated she was "ejected" from the vehicle. If you are ejected you were not wearing a seat belt.

My best to her and her family.

Something about riding in a jeep makes you think that seat belts are not necessary

If you take a real good look at some of the Jeeps that they use over there it's not hard to belive that someone was wearing their seatbelt and still got ejected from the vehicle.

Default they were not ejected

Officer Law WAS NOT ejected. she was in a "ejectory position" where she was lifted and hit the roll bar with her belly which caused the laceration of the liver, and the head injury which is similar to "shaken baby syndrome"

The Cozumel report was not complete, and names & locations are wrong.

These are my friends who were in this accident, and all are still in the hospital, some fighting for their lives.
One of the passengers in the rear seat (They had rented the yellow jeep which is the 4 door jeep) was wearing her lap belt, and at current time has 5 broken vertebra and has no feeling from the chest down.
She was flown to Miami.
Lt. Mitts a Firefighter from Sarasota is recovering at a trauma hospital in St. Pete with two broken ankles and a broken pelvis as well.



The driver is still in Mexico, with serious injuries, as she is not allowed to leave until the investigation is finished because there were deaths involved.

keep these people in your thoughts and prayers.

g8trgurl - thanks for updating us on the situation. My apologies if any of our comments, including my own, are harsh. It is natural to wonder "how could this happen".
