Another seat belt save!

Dec 19, 2011

Deputy Ami Williams credits her seatbelt with saving her from serious injury during an accident on December 19th.  Deputy Williams had just completed a traffic stop on IL. Rt10 when a large truck struck her squad car from behind, destroying the patrol car.  Despite the force of the crash, her seat belt kept her inside the protected area of the car.  Sheriff Jered Shofner believes it’s a perfect example of why seat belt use is so important for everyone, saying “Even trained drivers have accidents, no one is immune.”
