    An elderly woman was the driver and sole occupant of a midsize car involved in a minor collision with a standard sized automobile. She was restrained with a lap and shoulder belt and the air bag was deployed. Yet she suffered fatal chest injuries. No injuries were sustained by the unrestrained driver and passenger of the larger vehicle. Despite maximum restraint in a fully functioning new model car, even a minor collision can be fatal.
