Over the last five years the N.T.S.B. has been covertly funding a project with U.S. Auto makers whereby the auto makers have been installing "black boxes" in all four wheel drive pick up trucks they have manufactured. This was to determine, in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash. They were surprised in 41 of the 50 states the last words of the drivers in 61.2% of the fatal crashes were, "OH SHIT!"
Only the states of Arkansas, West Virginia, Georgia, Mississippi, Kentucky, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas and Tennessee were different, where over 89.3% of the final words were, "Hold my beer and watch this."
