Nope. Your health or how accident prone plays the biggest factor in how long you will live. Most of my relatives died young from heart disease and although I too have it, I will (if God willing) out live them by years do to all the advances that have been made in heart science.

It's based on your health I'm pretty sure

There are many factors which will influence how long you live. There are genetic diseases such as cancer, heart problems, etc.
Other factors include:
- where you live
- activities (smoking, how much exercise you get, etc.)
- eating habits
...and more

Getting hit by a truck will throw all of the genetic theories right out the window.

Which ancestors? Life expectancy in general was much younger than now.

Age has nothing to do with when you will die. God and only God knows when your time is up.

Genetics are a factor but so isn't life style. Living a healthy life can over rule genetic.
