    Horrible car accident...kids in CRs survive!

    This horrible crash happened not far from me, my aunt heard the whole thing and saw the aftermath. I'm so glad to see the 18 month old was still RF! Looks like the 4 yo was in a backless booster though Thankfully they both survived!

    ETA: Just watched it again and it looks like the other seat is a HBB so he was likely harnessed since the CR is still in the seat

    There is a rear-facing AOE and a BIG KID higback booster in the van.
    Glad those kids are okay.
