The Washington State Patrol reports that a 37-year-old woman and four children under the age of 7 survived a Thurston County car accident unscathed when the minivan they were riding in went off of the icy roadway and rolled down a 20ft embankment. The WSP credit seat belts and child safety seats for everyone surviving the accident uninjured.
The car accident occurred on February 24 around 9:00am when the driver lost control on SR510 near Mullen Road.
In Washington State, drivers are responsible for ensuring that all children under the age of 16 are properly restrained. Children age 7 years and younger and less than 4’9″ tall must be restrained in a child booster seat. Children under the age of 12 should be in the rear seat if at all possible.
