    Good lord, I hope that the 72 year old woman isn't the Mom. And it seems to me that by 12 and 13 years-old, they know how to fasten their own seat belt. Lighten up with the blame game - accidents do happen. Show some compassion instead.

    A side impact will cause enough force to pop a lot of seat belts open. Try this with the seat belts in your car. Lock them in position then take a VHS tape(or something similar) and hit the inside of the buckle (keep tension on the belt so that it is tight)and see if it stays locked.

    Did anyone say they were not in seatbelts? NO! Were you there, doubt it. Then lets not jump to conclusions you dont have the whole story yet. Further more you should be ashamed that all you can do is criticize. You should be offering support and prayers for the people involved. My dad was one that was on the scene and reguardless of who was/wasnt in a seatbelt or whos fault it was it was an awful accident and to see a child laying in the road like that is heart breaking the only thing on your minds should be prayers for the ones and families involved.

    Seat belts CAN fail!!! Don't be so quick to judge the mom. I was in a wreck when I was 13 and had my seat belt on but it didn't lock because the driver NEVER hit the brake so my forehead hit the windshield and I have scars and missing eyebrows from it. Most seat belts only lock when there is a drastic change in speed. God Bless the family!!!

    That is why I said see wnct, because if you read and see the first 2 comments say "hope the child was in a car seat" and I guess it would look a little silly with a teenager sitting in a car seat. I'm not a critic of witn just wanted to state a fact.

    I wish people would quit being such critics of WITN, if you don't like it then quit watching or viewing online. They go out and collect information and report it. That is all they can do. It is natural for two different stations to have different views because people analyze things differently.

    I sincerely hope everyone pulls through and is ok.

    WITN and WNCT have completely different facts on a number of stories.
