Three Adults And A Toddler Killed, Plus Four Injured in Alabama Crash

Posted in Car Accident, Community Service
Vehicle accidents involving drivers and passengers unwilling to take the time and make the effort to utilize seat belts have become an increasing problem and no amount of legislation can replace sound  judgment to curb this growing trend, Alabama attorney Keith T. Belt says   Alabama Department of Public Safety says four people — including a toddler — have died and four others were injured in a crash south of Tuscaloosa when an SUV carrying eight people left the road and flipped before hitting a tree near Knoxville Wednesday afternoon. The driver and none of the passengers, including the toddler, were secured with seat belts. Alabama Department of Public Safety says 21-year-old Justin Coleman, of Alexander City, 30-year-old Demetria Aaron, 22-year-old Latrice Robertson and 2-year-old Ziliyah Robertson, of Tuscaloosa were killed. Four other passengers between the ages of 10 and 17 were also injured and are being treated at DCH in Tuscaloosa, the Greene County Hospital and Children’s Hospital in Birmingham. Non-use of seat belts continue to be a major cause of useless deaths in car accidents in the state of Alabama after years of efforts to increase public awareness on the part of local, state and federal government agencies.
