Other victims who were sitting in that court were cringing with me saying that when they were trapped in their cars they also couldn't get their seatbelts out. They had to get help from officers on the roads.

Renisha says while digging into Loud she found that he is working for a company called Exponent Incorporated.

She says Ford has been using this company for years to help in similar cases.
