was the death caused by his not wearing a seat restraint or because of one of the car's safety features?

I'd say his death was caused by stealing a car, leading police on a 100mph chase, crushing into multiple vehicles, then a steel traffic light pole.

However, the more immediate cause was not wearing a seat belt.

This is the actual reboot screen for the Model S Bluetooth after a crash. Too bad more auto manufacturers don't have a sense of humor!

I've never rebooted the bluetooth, is that really what it says?

That's about the best possible test you could do with that car to show it is safe. A real-life sheared-in-two event and there can't have been much of a fire looking at the tarmac. I can't see any evidence of a fire.

The only shame of it is that Tesla can't find more test-dummies like this guy, and release them into a controlled crash-test environment, who are prepared to gamble their lives on trying to drive straight through solid objects at speed. It'd beat using those expensive plastic dummies!
