|What You Need to Know about Child Car Seats after an Accident|

A few weeks ago, my daughter-in-law, Cory, was forced off the road and crashed into an embankment. The good news--she is fine; which makes me especially thankful because Cory was seven months pregnant at the time. Another relief, her two-year-old, my grand daughter, was not in the car. The bad news--the car was totaled.
Afterward, Cory learned and shared some important advice on car accidents and child car seats. I admit I was unaware of the facts and want to pass them along to other parents and grandparents.
Even though no child was in the car seat, the child restraint is considered unsafe after a major crash. Cory was told to get a new seat and cut the straps in the old one before disposing of it. That's to prevent anyone else from using it, should they find it in the trash.
