Adults and children, by law, must wear safety belts or be properly secured in safety seats while in a moving vehicle. One Georgia woman is realizing the consequences of failure to obey this law.
A Sunday morning crash in late September has resulted in the arrest of a mother after her two children were ejected from the car.
28-year-old Tiffany Brooks of Crystal River, Florida, was traveling southbound on I-75 in Cobb County when the crash occurred. The crash happened near the Canton Road Connector entrance/exit ramp.
The minivan Brooks was driving struck a car, overturned, and came to rest near the ramp.
Brooks’ two children, aged 8 and 4, were ejected from the vehicle. They had been unrestrained in the back seat of the vehicle. They were flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, where they were said to be in critical condition.
Brooks faces numerous charges due to the accident. She is charged with two counts of serious injury by vehicle, two counts of second-degree cruelty to children, two counts of failure to properly secure child safety restraints, improper lane change, and a count of reckless driving.
Brooks made arrangements to surrender to authorities.
