A Rear Facing child seat just saved a kid’s life in this dramatic black ice car crash in Washington State

Yahoo! points out that one mother is sharing photos of the horrific car crash that she and her two young sons survived as a car seat call-to-action.

“All the doctors keep telling me if the boys would have been any different than they were in their seats, we might not be here today.”

The mother hit a patch of black ice while driving to her 5-year-old’s school with her 2-year-old in Tacoma ten days ago. Losing control after avoiding a head-on collision with another car, she smashed into a tree that completely crushed the five year old’s side of their van and flipped the vehicle upside down.

Some comments on social media suggest that the specific seat retails for $100 and that while it may not be a “nice” seat, it does further illustrates the point that you don’t have to spend a fortune to keep your child safe. Car seats should be checked by a CPST [child passenger safety technician] and used properly every single time because the life of your child relies on it.
