(Meredith) — A Pennsylvania mother shared a chilling photo after a serious car accident to remind everyone about the importance of car seat safety.
“THIS is why you buckle your kids into their car seats correctly every SINGLE time,” Jenna Rabberman wrote in a viral Facebook post on Tuesday.
Rabberman said she and her two young sons were headed home when another vehicle struck her 2015 Honda CRV.
The car was a mangled mess, but Rabberman said her 3-year-old and 6-week-old escaped without a scratch.
Paramedics told her there could have been a different outcome if she didn’t ensure her boys were buckled in correctly.
“It’s very easy to get caught up in ‘we’ve got to go, we’ve got to go,’ but take a moment, slow down. Everything else can be replaced — the seats, the car, everything. My kids? No way,” Rabberman said.
As of Friday, her post has been shared more than 265,000 times and counting.
