Yes. It is possible to have enough speed that even a seat belt would not save you but traffic deaths per number of vehicles have gone down since the laws requiring them have been enacted.

Was Lisa Left Eye Lopes wearing her seatbelt when she died?

Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez, was indeed wearing her seat belt on the day of her fatal car accident, there were several other people in the car as evidenced by the documentary, and ironically she was the only person in the car with her seatbelt on. I disagree. I watched the documentary very carefully, and you can clearly see (right before the accident) there is no strap across her body, and you can even see the buckle (or seat belt holder) is indeed not holding a seatbelt. Given Left Eye's new sobriety, and love of children, it is easy to see how her handlers (and the press) would have thought to honor her by saying she was indeed wearing a seatbelt.

What does an air bag have over a seatbelt?

An air bag decreases the time of impact. An easy way to explain it is the physics equation F=MA, Force=Mass X Acceleration. When an airbag deploys it increases the time of impact which in turn lowers the force that is inflicted upon the driver. A seatbelt alone will not do that. This is why even with airbags people involved in a traffic accident often break ribs, or have substantial bruising on their chest from the seatbelt. The airbag is what keeps them from experiencing even more substantial injuries.
