NHP investigated a vehicle rollover crash on I-80 between Winnemucca and Battle Mountain that involved a family of 5.
They were in a full size SUV that rolled over in the median.
The mom and dad in the front seat were not injured. Both were wearing seatbelts. Two children in the middle row age 2 and 3 were in rear facing child seats, and they were not injured. Two more children in the third row age 4 and 6, were in forward facing child seats, and they were not injured.
This rollover occurred at interstate speeds (75mph) and no one was injured!!! If this family was not wearing seatbelts, this might have been a tragic crash resulting in multiple fatalities.
Please let the public know that seatbelts work and that it does prevent injuries and fatalities.
