How many accidents are kids going to be in before you realize the importance of seatbelts? In just a 5 year span I lost quite a few friends to driving intoxicated and/or not wearing a seatbelt. Hopefully these kids are ok and their friends and classmates learn from it. Learn from the past!

Although I don't advocate NOT wearing seatbelts, lucky for them, they were not wearing them. In this crazy instance, not wearing their seat belts actually saved their lives. If they had been wearing them, they would not have survived the roll overs. Take a closer look at the pictures and where they would have been sitting at the time of the crash. Ejection from the vehicle saved their lives.

By the way...they weren't intoxicated...they were on their way to school.. I know both these boys well.

Though alcohol was not a factor SPEED was. As you see in the one pic the Officer is measuring the distance of the tire tracks and they calculate the speed, which was calculated at almost 100 mph these boys were going, passing a school bus full of our children. Young kids need to know they are NOT invincible death comes to anyone and any age.

I just read in the article that both were wearing seat belts and were able to get out of the car themselves. Either way, those boys are lucky to be alive! Those pictures say they shouldn't be...

i know the driver and i go to class with him at tech and he was wearing seat belts but i hear that he was try to pass someone and cut in front of a bus but he over correct his tires and flipped it

Minimum age for a driver's license should be raised to 18. Today's children are too irresponsible and immature to handle the responsibility of operating any kind of motor vehicle.
