[ISP] Seat Belt Does Its Job

Entry Description
Clark County-Earlier today at approximately 7:30 am, troopers from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg responded to a single vehicle crash along State Road #3 near the intersection of State Road #203 in Marysville, (rural Clark County). When officers arrived they discovered a Silver 2001 Honda Civic, driven by Christopher J. Water, 16, of Charlestown, traveled off of the roadway striking numerous trees. The driver received only minor injuries in a crash that could have been much worse if he had not been wearing his seat belt. The driver, Christopher Water, advised officers that he had fallen to sleep while driving to school. When he fell asleep he veered off of the roadway striking numerous trees. Trooper Phil D’Angelo, the officer working the crash, who is also a certified Crash Reconstructionist with the Indiana State Police stated,” no one knows for sure if the use of the seat belt saved his life but, I can guarantee that it lessened the severity of his injuries, and by looking at the damage to the vehicle he was driving, it is a miracle he was able to walk away from the crash.

Christopher Water was transported to Saint Catherine Hospital in Charlestown for follow up treatment due to a complaint of pain.
