The police also identified that the car was not cut open by the authorities. Since, the fuel tank is invariably placed under the back seat and the fuel lines run below the floor, no discerning emergency responder will ever attempt to cut the floor open. Instead, they remove the roof by cutting at the A, B, and C pillars to ease the process of extricating the passengers.
