Buick Riviera T-Bone Crash
2002 Buick Riviera turned left into the path of an oncoming Nissan 300ZX that ran the red light. Two different witnesses told Police that they estimated the Nissan speed between 65 and 80mpg.
Impact to passenger side of Buick was impressive!

Not a fatal crash. No entrapment. Driver's door of Buick opened normally. Passenger door of Nissan opened upon FD arrival. Driver door of Nissan originally thought to be jammed until I made sure it was unlocked and operated the interior door handle and the outside handle at the same time. Door latch released and door opened.
Three patients total: two Priority One patients and one Priority Two.
Elderly female driver on Buick Riviera:
Male driver of Nissan 300ZX:
blunt chest trauma
Male passenger of Nissan:
fractured rt femur

WOW. Some people have all the luck of the Irish. Some very serious injuries, but all occupants survived. I guess in a way that says something for the construction of the cars themselves. I noticed that all air bags deployed nicely, thats always good news. However, I know that I am glad I was not in either one of them as driver or passenger.If you don't do it RIGHT today, when will you have time to do it over?

Ron- Was the driver of the Nissan wearing a seatbelt?
I'm assuming they weren't, based on the injuries to the driver?
How much more convincing do people need as to the importance of wearing a seatbelt?
I'm stunned its still NOT illegal for someone not to wear one in some parts of the world.......Luke

Ron... outstanding photos.
How old was the driver of the Nissan? Do you know if he was talking on a cell phone. It might seem like a strange question, but how many accidents would be avoided if people put down the damn phone, and payed attention to driving the car?!?!?

Both occupants of the Nissan were unrestrained at the time of the collision.
The driver was not distracted, he was running a yellow light that Police believe turned red prior to his entering the intersection.
I'm researching the Buick further today. Now I've been informed that PD gave me an incorrect year of manufacture for that vehicle. GM did not make a riviera in 2002 so it must be slightly older than that.
