MINNEAPOLIS — Officials from the Department of Public Safety went on a rooftop today to talk about the physics of a car crash.

DPS officials say if someone is not wearing a seat belt when involved in a 60 mph crash, it can feel similar to falling from a 12-story building.

Officials said that, in a crash, unbelted vehicle occupants are six times more likely to suffer injuries than belted occupants.
