Not that dying in any other way is better, but these are one of the freakiest and most terrifying ways to die (and can happen to anyone and not entirely preventable either).

Well, I'd have to say driving behind a truck with a load of rebar, and they stop real fast and a few rods just fly back, through the windshield, and well, you know..... That and I think driving off a cliff. Those few seconds you know that you are done. That would suck.

I don't know if there was a reason, but if he called the 911 twice (and he sounded like a very decent boy in distress), why wasn't it possible to call somebody else . mom, dad, ...

I remember a local guy building a Camaro, hyping it up as full-fledged track car (roll cage, built forced-induced engine), bought some racing seats that folded and got reamed up the ass about how stupid he was b/c of the first link's reasoning.

OP - Not sure if you were looking for a real answer to your question, but my vote would be not being able to get out of a burning vehicle.

I am going to suggest three reasons:

1. Emergency situation + state of panic = call 911.
2. Parents possibly too far away to be of any assistance = call 911.
3. Emergency situation + state of panic + easiest number to dial when near death = call 911.

A family several blocks from where I grew as a kid, had a two door 4G Dodge Dart that ran over some metal rods that just fell off a truck (IIRC it belongs to metal recycling business) in front of them on the Baltimore beltway (695) in the early 70's.
Punctured the gas tank and started a fire, by the time the car pulled over to the side of the road it was engulfed in flames. Front seat occupants made it out with burns, neither back seat person made it out.

Mom would have to stop at the store on the way and Dad would get there in a few hours. 911 was the most sensible?

When my house is on fire, rather than call the Fire Department, i just get all my neighbors to turn on their hoses and we usually get the job done
