Obese drivers more likely to die in crash
As if being overweight was not dangerous enough, a new study found that obese drivers are more likely to die in a car crash.
People of larger body mass can face more serious injuries when cars collide.
Mildly obese drivers were 21 percent more likely to die in a crash. Severely obese drivers were 80 per cent more likely to die.
The researchers suggest car companies take a look at the problem and redesign their vehicles.
One in every three Americans is currently considered obese.
