Brett Russell Fuller, a teenage driver, is dead Sunday, January 4, 2009 after failing to wear a seat belt in a fatal single-car crash in Tampa, Florida. Fuller, a 19-year old, was driving his 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer near his house when he lost control of his car. His car rolled over several times after running off the road and came to a rest in a strawberry field.
Fuller’s fatal injuries were suffered as he was ejected from the car.
But Fuller was not the only person in the car. The passenger, William White, lived and walked away from the scene of the accident after receiving medical treatment for his minor injuries. The Sheriff’s spokesperson said that while Fuller was not wearing a seat belt, White wore his and was not ejected from the car.
