Seat belts may of helped in this situation, but it not the root cause of this accident.

As far as the Advocate, they rarely if ever follow up on story of interest

Wow, Roy. They proved you wrong. Right on the front page of today's paper copy is a follow-up.

Methinks she will forever be sorry she didn't have the kid's strapped in car seats. Welcome to the consequences of your actions, or rather, non-actions. Our lives always carry this struggle. I hope the Victoria Advocate is reporting this right- would hate to leave a comment like this and it not be the case.
