A simple step can save lives
A recent tragedy in our area provides a reminder of how important it is to always wear a seatbelt.
It was reported that a man killed in a single-vehicle crash in Union Parish last week was not buckled up and was ejected from the vehicle. Whether a seatbelt could have saved his life in this instance is not known. However, according to Louisiana State Police, the majority of fatal and serious injury crashes involve occupants who are not wearing seatbelts.
However, statistics show many still choose not to buckle up.
