    Considering the way the roof was crushed, I don't think a safety harness would have made much of a difference.

    Car looks to have had "low back" styled front seats, and no rear seats to speak of, wasn't there 3 people injured??

    Perhaps the roof was "sawed off" to get the occupants out of there?

    Wow, that must have been expensive!!

    I guess "harness" means cage or roll bar in this instance? Even with a better set of belts, my guess is they weren't using them anyway. But at least then the CHP could have sited them and got some revenue out of the deal.

    I don’t want a roll cage on my car, that should only apply to people like Kevin Hart who have more money than brains to buy a 700 hp plus car and go canyon carving as a passenger while your friend drives a car he’s not familiar with
