Two teens were killed on May 31, 2008 in a car crash in Chesapeake, Virginia (VA). Three teens were driving down Interstate 664 in a Ford Mustang at 75 mph when the driver lost control. The car flipped several times after running off the side of the road and into a ditch in the highway median. The driver and a passenger, two females, died soon after the crash and weren’t wearing seat belts. The car’s second passenger, a 15 year old male, survived the crash and was wearing a seat belt. He was critically injured in the crash, but in good condition according to a dailypress.com article on June 2, 2008.

After jumping in the car with friends, it’s easily to forget to buckle up. As a driver or safe passenger, though your friends may tease you, make a conscious decision to remind everyone to wear his or her seat belt.
