Woman And Child Killed In Daviess County Car Accident

According to a local Terre Haute news report, a 50-year-old woman and a 4-year-old child were killed in a one-vehicle accident in Daviess County in Indiana.

Local Indiana police reported that the woman, Lisha Moffett of Shoals, Indiana, apparently lost control of her car while negotiating a curve on Highway 50 west of Loogootee. Both she and her passenger, a young boy named Rolen Wilson, were ejected from the vehicle as the car drove into a ditch and then flipped. Wilson was Moffett’s grandson.

Moffett died at the scene of the Indiana car accident while Wilson died at Daviess Community Hospital after being rushed to medical treatment by emergency responders. Moffett was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the IN car crash. While Wilson was strapped into a booster seat in the front of the car, it is not known if the car seat was properly installed.
A very heartbreaking story to read of. 4 years old is still a very young age to have left this world in vain and in such a sudden too. If it was a reckless accident caused by other irresponsible road users, then it was inevitable. However, this is because of his own grandmother's carelessness and ignorance that caused his death. A really tragic end and it could have been avoided if the seat belts were on.

Incidents like this are so sad to hear about. There is a reason that cars have seat belts, it is unfair that a child lost his life because the grandmother did not make sure to secure the car seat.
