Father and Son Killed After Car Crash With Each Other
There is an extremely sad story coming out of Winfield, Alabama this week. The story involves a father and son getting into a car crash with each other, and being killed because of the collison.
The father and son were driving in opposite directions on a roadway around 4:00 am on the morning of Saturday, February 8th. Law enforcement officials say that the father’s pickup truck and the son’s pickup collided head on.
Following the collision, the father was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The son was transported to the hospital to receive treatment, but sadly he passed away later in the morning from injuries sustained in the motor vehicle accident.
The police believe that alcohol was a factor in the car accident. The police officers also believes that neither the son or the father was wearing their seatbelt at the time of the collision. Officers are continuing to investigate the accident.
It is extremely important to never drink and drive. Drinking and driving is not worth the risk or harming yourself or other people. Wearing a seatbelt is also very important. The use of a seatbelt can help to save your life in case of a car crash.
How can we get people to use their seatbelts?
