    I take it probably not wearing a seatbelt either if he was ejected, good riddance I’m glad he didn’t hit/injur anybody else.

    When you aren’t seatbelted in and your car rolls you will usually get thrown out … eventually. Sometimes you are only partially ejected and then only the part that’s sticking out gets smashed by the rolling car.
