What’s the Matter Here?
Saturday evening, my family and another family saw a medical helicopter take off after collecting a patient. I later found out the helicopter was transporting a victim of a horrible accident
on the Pennsylvania turnpike. The accident involved a car with one driver and an SUV with four young people returning from a trip to an amusement park.
None of the SUV passengers was wearing a seatbelt, and all were thrown from the vehicle. The man in the other car was killed.
Hello? Didn't the people in the SUV see what happened to New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine in April? Didn't they pay attention in their driver's education classes or health class special sessions on safety?
What more do people need to see to realize the dangers of not buckling up?
