Young Man Dies From Faux Airbags

Posted under Uncategorized

The parents of Bobby Ellsworth are still saddened by their son's death in 2003.  Ellsworth was in a fatal accident while he was riding in his friend's pickup truck.  At the onset of the collision, Bobby's airbags failed to deploy.

Bobby's parents claim he would be alive today if he had been protected by the vehicle's airbags.

The truck his friend was driving had been totaled before, and taken to a repair/resale shop.  Unfortunately, the body shop that bought the truck failed to replace the airbags that had gone off perfectly in a prior accident.

Instead, they opted to fill the airbags with rags and paper, and had been glued shut.
