    When I clicked on the link to read the article I was a little surprised to see 2 Jaguar advertisements surrounding the story!!!

    Sad story. Was the son's comment on the article when you read it? If not, please look again.

    What would be accurate reporting is that she did not have a seatbelt on when she was found, after the accident. Perhaps it didn't properly lock into place. Or perhaps it didn't function properly and became disengaged. Or perhaps she didn't have it on in the first place.

    My thought as well -- I wondered if it was perhaps a defective buckle, or maybe because of unfamiliarity with the new car she didn't realize it wasn't properly locked. Doesn't sound like the type to decide to leave it unfastened, based on what her son says. Usually folks like that automatically fasten the seat belt as a part of getting in and starting the vehicle.

    Jaguar is a fairly safe car. XJ6 was good enough to save Barbara Mandrell years ago. She was wearing her seatbelt however.
