We are very fortunate that both of these drivers were wearing their seat belts. Very minor injuries were reported and neither driver required medical attention at either scene. This is a huge testimony about the importance of wearing seat belts at all times when driving. We feel very strongly that by these drivers wearing their seat belts, a tragedies were prevented. We truly commend both drivers for wearing their seat belts!
