The family of Scott Laliberte, a 25-year-old student who died in a rollover crash in September of 2004, has filed suit against Mitsubishi, alleging that the company knew the seatbelt installed in its 2000 Montero Sport vehicle was faulty. Mitsubishi denies the claim, saying the high speeds involved in the crash were what caused Laliberte’s death, not the “energy absorbent” belt model installed in the car’s passenger seat. Laliberte was in the passenger seat going down I-95 when the driver lost control and the vehicle flipped several times. He died several hours later at the hospital after suffering severe injuries.
The driver, whose seat belt was normal and not of the “absorbent” model, walked away from the accident with only minor injuries.
