A friend of mine worked an accident in Polk county over the weekend. Here is the news report of the accident. What I want you to note is that this was a T-bone collision of two vehicles, with the truck that ran the red light striking the Beetle on the driver’s door. The truck flipped over and came to rest on its wheels. Of the 6 occupants of the two vehicles, three of them were wearing seat belts, but the three children not wearing restraints, two ten year olds and an eight year old, were the worst off. The two ten year olds were dead, and the eight year old is probably not going to live.
The message here is wear your seatbelts. Make your passengers wear them.
