North Shore Fire Department Chief Robert Whitaker says the driver was seriously injured. They don't believe he was wearing a seatbelt.
\"That car is basically a bubble once the airbags deploy,\" Chief Whitaker said. \"The seatbelt is meant to keep you in place so you can take advantage of that bubble. If you're not seat belted in you're going to rumble around, you're going to fly, you're going to move out of the vehicle. You can't take advantage of that system or bubble that' created around you.\"
The investigation is on-going.
