He was wearing a seatbelt and the car had headrests. He had severe neck pain at the scene, and his spine was immobilized by the paramedics with a rigid cervical collar and head blocks. Upon arrival in the emergency department he was complaining of neck pain, heaviness in all limbs, and pins and needles in his hands and feet.
