    When I was young we road all over in the back of pick-ups. Good times! Sometimes accidents just happen. No reason to be so judgmental..

      Event Safety Services, says:

      Accidents just happen, or do they? An accident, according to Webster’s Dictionary, states that an unforeseen, unplanned event or circumstance occurs and that this event transpires from a lack of intention or necessity. The statement that accidents just happen is an improper designation. A better description would state that accidents are caused. Traditionally, there are multiple contributing factors to an accident. The majority of which are preventable.

      Accidents like this are caused, by dumbasses.

    I see it all the time. There is a woman who has four children and she never belts them in. All it takes is one time.
