whomever said no didn't watch it all the way through. Its a huge plot point that a main character was in the back seat when her parents were killed in a crash. They show it in a flash back and it's talked about.

one of the biggest plot points in the entire film, it's what brings the movie full circle. It's a bus, not technically a car
