"We Don't Need No Stinkin' Seatbelts"
A CUSTOM-RAISED PICKUP TRUCK crammed with six passengers in Collier County, Florida, rolled over, ejecting the driver and another passenger who were killed when the driver tried a driving stunt.

Randall Landry, his wife Savannah, and two other couples were out having fun in Landry's high-suspension Ford F250 Saturday night when Landry decided to "make some donuts." Turning off the roadway into an unpaved parking lot, Landry turned the steering hard left and gunned the motor in an attempt to put the truck into a spin with the rear wheels burning rubber as the truck rotates.
Instead, the truck toppled over, partially ejecting Landry and another man, Jose Castillo, 28, who were both crushed to death when the overturned truck came to rest on them. Savannah Landry and another woman were seriously injured and hospitalized while the other two people suffered minor injuries requiring treatment but no hospitalization.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported that none of the six were wearing seatbelts.
The Fort Myers News-Press carried the STORY.
