A 20-month-old boy was killed in a tragic motor vehicle accident accident in St. Joseph, Missouri. The boy was not in his car seat, as required by law, when his mother collided with a snowplow.
The child’s mother, 24-year-old Alicca Williams told state troopers that she hit an icy curve and slammed on her breaks just before colliding with the snowplow. She and the snowplow operator suffered minor injuries, but sadly her son passed away after being airlifted to a Kansas City hospital.
Williams had allowed her 20-month-old son to drive up front with her and without a car seat. She was traveling only a short distance between her and her mother’s house and says she didn’t think to put him in the car seat. Williams was also driving with a suspended license at the time of the crash. Prosecutors have not decided if they will bring criminal charges against her.
Serious car accidents can occur when icy roads are not treated properly and drivers fail to take proper precautions to protect themselves and others from accidents.
