Infant Dies Friday When Ejected From A Car

When are parents going to learn to properly secure their infants in age appropriate seats? A 10 month old infant died on Friday when she was thrown out of the driver side window during an accident on Detroit's east side. A truck ran a stop sign and crashed into a vehicle carrying the infant and then ran into the front porch of a home injuring a teenager.  I understand the accident was not the mother's fault.  On the other hand, her child would still be alive, if only she had properly secured the infant in the middle of the back seat in a car seat! Your chances of getting into a car accident is higher than getting into a plane crash so why would a parent not put the child in a car seat or make sure the seat is installed properly? What does it take? A whole two minutes to make sure the seat is installed correctly? Now the mother of the infant could be facing child neglect charges.  I feel she should be charged with vehicular homicide.  Because of her laziness, her child is now dead.  I am sure she has a lot of regrets and is mourning the loss of her infant right now. But, I don't sympathize with her because of her stupidity. I sympathize with the child who lost their life because of their mother's stupidity.
