Are you taking the proper safety precautions with your children in the car? Well, I'm sure one CNY parent is counting their blessings they did after a car crash on 690 this past Wednesday. Five cars were involved in the crash that flipped one car, injured a motorcyclist, and ejected one child from a vehicle. Lucky, the child was in a car seat and suffered minor injuries.
However, as the investigation continues in this crash, I can't help but think what may have happened if the child was not strapped in a car seat correctly or at all. There are many stories of failed car seats and children deaths in car crashes, and hopefully this one sheds light on how important they are to a child's safety.
