Middle TN Mother Says Car Seat Check Helped Protect Her Daughter
A near head-on collision in Millersville could have led to serious injuries for a young girl, but a car seat inspection and reinstallation performed by the Springfield Fire Department just minutes prior to the close call helped protect the girl from harm.
WKRN.com reports that a nurse told the girl’s mother that she should go to a hospital or fire department if she had ever questions or issues with her daughter’s car seat. The mother later found out that her daughter’s car seat straps were loose, so she contacted the Springfield Fire Department last Saturday.
When she arrived at the SPD, firefighters helped her tighten the straps and get the car seat back in good working condition. But immediately after leaving the fire department, she encountered a vehicle that crossed all four lanes of traffic and began heading directly in her direction.
