Saved By The Belt
Three Weymouth teens where traveling on Route 53 in February 2012 when their Nissan was struck on the passenger side by a car that entered the road from a parking lot and struck the side of their SUV. That impact caused the Nissan to spin clockwise and flip onto its side.
Fortunately, the driver, Jenna L. Sartucci, 18, and her two 17 year old passengers, Lauren H. Wiessmeyer and Kelly A. Griffin were all properly seat belted and not injured.
Traffic Officer Philip Tracey, a crash reconstructionist, wrote the teen, if not seat belted, likely would have suffered serious if not fatal injuries.
