WSP Concerned with Number of Unbuckled Motorists Killed in 2013

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash.--The Washington State Patrol is concerned about the number of people dying in car accidents, while not wearing their seatbelts.

Troopers said so far this year, six of the seven people killed in collisions in District 6 weren't properly restrained. Sadly, two of these deaths were children.

District 6 includes Kittitas, Chelan and Grant counties.

"It's vital that we get these people buckled up because no matter how good a driver you are if somebody else does something wrong you don't have time to react," said Trooper Darren Wright.

Troopers said as the weather warms up, more people are on the roads driving at faster speeds.

WSP begins their "Click It Or Ticket" campaign May 20th. Extra patrols will be looking for people not buckled up.
