"...and mostly pointless item,"
Exactly. The masks give absolutely no health benefit whatsoever. They serve simply to give the wearer an added layer of anonimity amidst the concrete urban jungle; and salarymen like their anonimity, don't they!

"30,000 dollars?" No, the article clearly states the sum as three million yen; American dollars are not in circulation in Japan.

From the image shown on TV news reports, the impact was on the right-hand side of the vehicle (a long-body Toyota similar to Hiace). It is entirely possible the victim was seated on this side (probably at the back, several rows behind the driver). Therefore he would have absorbed much of the kinetic energy imparted by the truck; as such, seatbelt usage arguably would have offered little protection to a side impact. Not mentioned in the article is the fact five other passengers suffered minor injuries--they may have been seated further froward, on the downward (left) side.

Route 18 from Takasaki to Karuizawa is extremely dangerous; truck drivers speed toward Usui Pass without any regard to speed limits. In fact, the only thing slowing them are the numerous switchbacks.
