Seat Belt Use And Teens: Getting It To Click

seatbelt-use.jpgAccording to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 14-year-old girl died from injuries she suffered in a three-vehicle crash last week. The Northwest Florida Daily News reports that the young girl of Youngstown was a passenger in a northbound 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by a 16 year old male from Milton, when he lost control of the vehicle just after 10 p.m. on U.S. 231 just south of Johnny Lane. Mann began driving into the median and then began to overturn into the southbound lanes. Two other vehicles struck the trailblazer as it entered the southbound lanes. Mann and his two passengers were all ejected from the vehicle, but the 14 year old female died from her injuries. FHP says no one in the trailblazer was wearing a seatbelt.

Both people were thrown from the motorcycle. FHP reports that the passenger on the motorcycle died and the driver of the motorcycle is in critical condition at Bay Medical Center. Both people on the motorcycle were wearing helmets.

I am very glad that I took that course so that when I turned sixteen, I had a little bit of experience in driving, which is more than many actually have.
