How did Trevor Ress Jones survive the accident that killed Princess Di?

The latest documentary "Witnesses in the tunnel" has got me wondering. Dodi and the Driver were killed immediately, Diana(riding in the back seat) dies shortly thereafter, and Jones who was in the front seat next to Henri Paul(driver) survives? Im not one of those conspiracy theorists who think she was murdered. Drunk driver(3 times the legal limit!), driving too fast, loses control, period. Happens to princesses too, not just "normal" people. But how on earth Jones managed to survive is beyond me.

    none of them had their seatbelts on exept Trevor.

    Di was thrown around in the back and ended up on the floor facing the back window kind of crumpled.

    she was alive when they opened the car, the story goes that she was no suppose to get to the hospital due to security issues, that lapse of time is what killed her.

    kinda like what happened to Marily Monroe.

    According to the link given below, Trevor Reese Jones survived the accident "with major facial injuries from the violence of the deceleration and debris intrusion." Moreover, the two front seat passengers' airbags functioned normally. Computer simulations suggest that Lady Diana would have survived the crash if she had been wearing a seat belt.

    Firstly, he was wearing his seat belt, secondly as a royal protection officer he was probably extremely fit and his body was more able to survive extreme trauma. Also we don't know exactly how the car hit the wall, he may have been furthest away from the collision point increasing his chances of survival.

    That latest doc. of which you speak refers to "No one in the car wearing their seatbelts". Not that that is automatically fact, but nonetheless. People's bodies react differently to trauma. There are many examples of this in numerous different accidents. Plane crashes that kill all onboard, save a few. A parachuter with a broken chute, survives, etc. As for her being "murdered". There are refutations to every murder theory, but i'll just point out the one previously referred to above. The princess did not die due to a delay in arriving to the hospital. She had MASSIVE internal injuries, experienced 2 heart attacks on the way to the hospital, and sustained head injuries. And people can honestly think that if she had arrived just a little bit sooner to the hospital, she'd have just pulled right through. Umm, lovely thought, but no. When you are hemorraging internally to that extent, your done for. Boils down to people just not wanting to accept that someone who lived a fairy tale life,(charles aside) just, the whole "princess, and loaded thing", a person that they loved and respected so much, could die such a plain, unglamorous death. But what her death did, was prove that she was merely a human being like everyone of us. It was her time to go, and that's all.

    He wore a seat belt and survived (just), the others didn't and they died.

    I have yet to see a conspiracy theorist's explanation for how they got the other occupants to not wear their seat belts.

    The reason why Rees Jones survived has been well-documented;he was the only one wearing a seatbelt.If Diana had bee wearing a seatbelt,she would be alive today.

    He HAS been puzzled! Rees-Jones suffered a annoying head harm and has no reminiscences of what handed off in the time of the twist of destiny.memory-loss led to with the aid of annoying harm isn't any marvel and is a nicely-documented element-effect of a innovations-trauma.

    Luck. And he was the only one in the car wearing a seat belt.

    He was the ONLY one to have his seat belt on. I think that was the only reason. His injuries almost killed him but he survived. It just wasn't his time.

    There is quite a lot of evidence it was a murder.

    As for the physics, its quite safer to be belted in the front seat than to be unbelted in the rear.
