Default Car wreck, body in car goes unnoticed, at least twice.

WTF?

The severe incompetence of all involved is astounding. First the moron HP writes in his report no body at the scene of the crash. Then the moron wrecker driver doesn't look inside the car either.

The family has every right to be irate.

If that poor woman wasn't plainly visible in the driver's seat, where was she?

Under the deployed airbag, under the steering wheel. Evidently she was petite.

How stupid do you have to be to walk up to a wreck, see a deployed airbag and not check in the car? I don't get it....

Damn, I hope she wasn't alive and suffering for much of that time. Who stops looking for the body in a single car accident that deployed both airbags? You think they just walked away and left the car? After 3 days I bet the towing company began to smell trouble.

Sounds like she didn't have her seat belt on and ended up in the passenger side foot well, obscured by the airbags.

Another view of the car, hard to see into the passenger side. Not checking it out after it was pulled out of the ditch......ignorant.

you can clearly see the impact on the passenger side window. The car should have been thoroughly checked.

Agree I would be upset but if it was my wife/gf/direct family I would be at the car asap. not three days later. Where was the family would be my first question when a woman what ever size she was vanished. Blaming the officer is easy but where are the caring family members.
No that did not look good on our LEO's.

The airbag often times breaks the windshield. Especially the larger bags used on the passenger side. Still no excuse for not visually inspecting the interior of the car.
