seatbelts are perhaps the most important safety feature on any car. but believe it or not. seatbelts can actually injure some drivers. especially senior citizens. drivers aged 85 or older are nine times more likely to be injured in a crash. chest injuries are the most common. and, they're usually caused by the seatbelt. kris van cleave has that. >> reporter: seatbelts are credited saving 14,000 lives last year. but the seatbelts are designed for your average 40-year-old male. so the amount of force it takes to keep an average 40-year-old male in place that could actually be enough force to injury a smaller or older driver. >> i remember sitting there and my body was just flipping back and forth. pam ended up in a neck brace after a jeep backed into her car.

3:59 am
but perhaps too much force for some one older. >> reporter: crash tests show how seatbelts save lives. the driver at the top of your screen without a belt is launched forward. but when it comes to older drivers in particular, seatbelts are also blamed for a higher rate of potentially serious even deadly chest injuries. as older drivers tend to be more easily injured in a crash. already, 43 million u.s. drivers are over 65. that's nearly one in every five drivers. their ranks are expected to swell by 77% by 2045. >> seatbelts do their job. they do their job very well. let's raise the bar higher. my job is to try to improve injured. >> to be clear, researchers say everyone, regardless of age, or size, should wear their seatbelt when they're in a car. but there are some things you can do the seatbelts are adjustable. you want to loper it down, so the seatbelt rests on your clavicle here, much stronger than your ribs. other thing, make sure you have 10, 12 inches between you and airbag in front of you. >> that's "overnight news" for this wednesday. for some, the news continues.
