Indiana State Police say the driver advised both children in the vehicle were wearing seat belt although facts from the crash show if they were they could not be wearing them properly. A 13-year-old girl in the back seat was partially ejected out the back passenger side window, police say. Troopers also say there was no child restraint system in the vehicle. Authorities say both adults in the front seat were wearing their seat belt.
The Indiana State Police remind parents that all children less than eight-years old must be properly fastened and restrained in a child restraint system. Children between eight and sixteen must be properly fastened and restrained by a child restraint system or safety belt.
