Well, that explains a lot. How senseless and tragic.

On the news source I read it said the father was going to work and son was coming home from a party, though family sources said the son didn't drink. Doesn't really matter it's a tragic situation, the article also said the mother is fighting cancer and a sister has just recovered from her own serious auto crash. Simply sad no matter what is or isn't true.

That's terrible. I read the story a couple days ago on FB a friend of mine posted it. If I'm not mistaken that happened fairly close to where I grew up

I been pushing seatbelt use for years. If my youngest had been wearing hers things in her life and ours would be a lot different. Also in the past couple weeks there have been two fatal auto accidents nearby. One the vehicle left the road and hit a tree head on, driver had on seat belt passenger in front seat did not. Passenger went thru windshield and died, driver was hurt but made it. A few days later I lost a friend I fished with some, 75 years old and we don't know or will ever know the entire story if he had a heart attack before he ran off the road or not but what should have been a simple run in the ditch accident rolled the car and ejected him landing on top of him, instant death. The funeral home couldn't even put him back together for a showing so everything was closed casket. You get in one of my vehicles it will not move until the belt goes click, no exceptions.

I was fortunate in that years ago I had a company vehicle and the boss man required us to buckle up and was adamant about it, it became such a habit I never even think about it anymore it's automatic for me

You're not going to show up wearing your dad shorty-shorts if they don't, are you?
