Thanksgiving Crash Kills 3 Heading to Kentucky

Matthew Troutman Nov. 25, 2022

At about 6:00 am on Thanksgiving, November 24, 2022, there was a single-car accident on I-79 in Kanawha County, West Virginia resulting in the death of two adults and one child. Two other children were injured and in serious condition. The vehicle exited the road right for an unknown reason and went into and out of a ditch. It is reported that a lack of use of seatbelts may have contributed to the injuries and death. For further details on the accident click here. The lack of seatbelt usage often results in death as the occupants are frequently ejected or thrown into the windshields. Although using a seatbelt cannot guarantee survival of an accident, statistically, use of the seatbelt increases the survivability in an auto accident. Currently, over 600 people have died in Kentucky as a result of motor vehicle accidents in 2022. A grim reminder that we should never take for granted the use of an automobile and give our complete attention to operating the vehicle in a safe manner. Also, wearing a seatbelt is extremely important.
