30 year old John Jones didn't know when he left his home yesterday morning to go to Walmart to get a great deal on back to school supplies for his three children that he would be arrested because he chose not to wear his seatbelt.
"I always thought it was a stupid law-the seatbelt law, ya know. I mean not for kids but if me as an adult wants to take the risk then it should be my choice was my thinking. Who knew that not wearing a seatbelt could make you loose control over your car and put others at risk?"
Jones, was headed toward the cross walk the same time Mary Martin, and her twin sister Geraldine Martin, both 45, were mid cross.
"I went to put my foot on the brake but my body just started rocking back and forth and I couldn't brake in time. If I had been wearing my seatbelt that never would have happened. I only wish I knew that before."
The only witness to the accident, 28 year old Samantha Tuttlebug, was behind Jones. "I was texting so I really wasn't paying attention to what the guy in front of me was doing. I'm just glad I always wear my seatbelt."
