A car accident took place last Tuesday, around 6:00 p.m. in west Charlotte. The collision injured eight people, two of whom are mere children.

According to CMPD, the accident took place at the intersection of West Boulevard and Old Steele Creek Road.The children were subsequently rushed to the hospital, but luckily, neither of their injuries were considered life threatening.

Unfortunately the same can not be said for one passenger of the vehicle, who currently does have potentially life threatening injuries, according to MEDIC. Of the eight passengers, six were taken to CMC Main, whereas the more seriously injured parties were rushed to Presbyterian Main.

At this moment, all we know is that a “sedan-type” car and the SUV carrying the eight passengers were involved in the accident. However, no details have been released as to fault or cause of the accident.

To minimize or prevent harm if involved in a vehicle accident, it is critical that they be placed in approved child safety seats and that older children be seatbelted, ideally in the center of the back seat. As children grow, the child safety seats change with them, usually based on weight. Follow the guidelines and make sure your child has the proper seat so that they are protected.
