Car Accidents – Car Seat Safety

Car seat safety is extremely important. On May 1, 2014 a 4 month old infant was tragically killed in a car crash in Lake City, Florida. Car accidents are a common occurrence in Lake City and in Florida. It is imperative that every family with a child under the age of 9 takes every precaution necessary to ensure that a car accident does not tragically alter their life.

According to state troopers, a man named Charles Giddens, of Fort White, Florida was stopped on the shoulder of westbound US-27, attempting to make a U-turn. The car accident occurred when Giddens was struck by Thomas Ingram of Lake City, Florida. Giddens rolled onto the south shoulder and hit a sign. Ingram’s car came to rest in the eastbound lane. The 4-month-old boy in Ingram's car was rushed to Lake City Medical Center and later died of his injuries. Troopers say the child wasn't properly strapped in the car seat.

Children must be properly restrained in a car safety seat. Many parents allow too much slack in the car seats restraint belts that may not provide adequate protection in a crash. It is also common to not have the seat properly attached to the vehicle to fold it in place in the event of a crash. Many local Fire Departments and Law Enforcement Agencies have personnel certified to check safety seats in your car to verify correct installation and use. This is a free service, contact your local Law Enforcement Agency, Fire Department or Florida Highway Patrol for locations that provide this service.
