X-ray shows horrific break sustained by passenger who had feet on dashboard 

An X-ray image showing the devastating results of being in a car crash while resting your feet on the dashboard has been released by a Wales Police Sgt.

Sharing the image on Twitter, Sargent Ian Price said: "Here is an X-ray of horrific injuries sustained to the front seat passenger who had their feet on the dashboard at the time of a collision.

"If you see your passenger doing it stop driving and show them this."

Price added: "The original source - Platinum Ambulance Service shared this on 21/1/20 The objective in my post here is to to educate & prevent significant harm to others. Please share."

Twitter users were left in shock, with one replying: "Such an important message to get across. Probably worth mentioning that there is a very happy insurance company somewhere as the negligence shown by the passenger will vastly reduce or cancel their liability."

Another user admitted to sitting with their legs up on the dashboard, saying: "I am 60 and have put feet on dash many times in my life. I know I will be stopping it now and will be sharing this post around everyone I know."
