seat belt Deadly Start to October Underscores Belt Crackdown

The wreckage of an SUV involved in a fatal crash in Fridley two nights ago will be the backdrop for a news conference on seat belts today. Four people were ejected when the SUV rolled over several times, killing the driver, 36 year-old Ernesto Avila-Trevino. Two passengers were critically injured. So state officials today are announcing a month-long statewide seat belt enforcement effort. They say October is off to deadly start: 12 deaths in six days. Each year, more than half the people killed in car accidents were NOT wearing their seat belts.
