Brooklyn Couple Escapes Deadly Crash Against All Odds

On March 20, 2103 a husband and wife were involved in a terrifying 2:30 a.m. wreck on an icy stretch of Brooklyn highway near the barely a scratch.

A man was driving eastbound with his wife in the snow in the very early hours of the morning when it was still dark outside and visibility was low. The couple's 1999 Ford Expedition encountered a patch of ice near an entrance ramp to the Brooklyn-Staten Island span of the Belt Parkway on Brooklyn.

The police officers who arrived at the scene of the accident described the scene, stating that the couple's Ford skidded on the patch of ice and then flipped over onto the roof which continued skidding along the guardrail. After skidding for some time, the vehicle burst into flames.

Firefighters who showed up at the gruesome accident scene were shocked to when they learned that the couple actually survived this flaming crash. After an initial investigation, law enforcement determined that it was likely the couple's seatbelts that saved their lives. The police made a note in their report that the cause of the accident was the icy roadway, and not other factors such as speeding or alcohol.

This accident shows the inherent dangers of winter driving. The New York roads in winter are full of hazards, some which can be seen and others, like the slick roads and tough to see ice patches, which cannot be seen even by a cautious driver.

This violent and intense accident has a silver lining; the occupants of the vehicle, who did absolutely nothing wrong in causing this accident, survived unscathed with little or no injuries. This is due to the fact that the vehicle's airbags properly deployed and even more so, that both passengers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident. It cannot be stressed enough how vital the wearing of a seat belt is to minimizing the effects of injuries stemming from car accidents. Always buckle up for safety!
