Earnhardt's Autopsy Report

NPR's Tom Goldman reports on the autopsy records of the late NASCAR great, Dale Earnhardt. An independent medical expert says Earnhardt died when his head whipped forward violently after his car crashed into a wall during a race in February . The medical report found no evidence that his death may have been caused by a broken seat belt buckle, as a NASCAR doctor contended.
