Saturday night two teenagers from Dublin, Ohio were killed in a car accident. The driver of the 2000 Toyota Solara lost control of the car, which struck the guardrail, rebounded and struck several trees on the other side of the road. The teens were not wearing their seatbelts and were ejected from the vehicle when it rolled over. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Because they were thrown from the car, it is not known whether the 18-year-old male or the 15-year-old female was driving the car at the time of the accident.
Of all the tragedies that may befall your family, losing your children in a car accident is one of the worst. When you are teaching your children to drive, teach them the importance of wearing their seatbelts. And it is just as important to model the behavior, using your seatbelt every time you get in the car. And remember that rural Ohio roads can be deceptively dangerous–with curves, hills, and numerous blind turns–drive carefully and make sure you all make it to your destination safely.
Unfortunately, even if you and your children do everything right, you or they may still be hurt by the negligence of other drivers.
