Jonathon W. Tipton, 19, of Clyde, was driving a 1997 Grand Prix north on Township Road 220 in Riley Township, Sandusky County, at about 11:20 p.m.

The vehicle failed to negotiate a right curve just south of Ohio 412, and went off the left side of the roadway, veered across the right side of the road, went off the left side of the road again and struck a large tree. The impact caused the car to spin around. It came to a rest facing east, partially blocking the roadway.

Tipton was seriously injured and had to be taken by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. He was not wearing a safety belt.

Two passengers in the vehicle were also injured.

Attiah M. Fogle, 19, of North Canton, who was sitting in the right front seat, was seriously injured and also taken by medical helicopter to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. She was wearing a safety belt.

Dustin J. E. Waugh, 19, of Chillicothe, who was sitting in the left rear seat, suffered minor injuries and was transported by Sandusky County EMS to Fremont Memorial Hospital. He was also wearing a safety belt.

Troopers are still investigating the crash. Speed is believed to be a factor. Alcohol use is unknown.

I noticed how they stressed the seat belt issue so here's is my two cents. Had to pay my seat belt ticket yesterday and Judge O'brian started ranting about the statistics of fatalities and that seat belts lower them.....I still want to know why in a free country i can not chose whether i wear my seat belt or not. Get caught, its a fine and a minor misdemeanor. Yeah that's right i'm a criminal for not wearing my seat belt!! So before you all start your blah, blah, blah, with all the statistics and how this nanny state cares so much for my life, i got a question for you all, especially you Judge O'brian!! Why is it i can not CHOSE TO WEAR MY SEAT BELT BUT A WOMAN IN THIS COUNTY CAN CHOSE TO MURDER HER UNBORN CHILD! ABORTION HAS A 100% FATALITY RATE!!! SO WHERE ARE OUR PRIORITIES IN THIS PLACE WE CALL LAND OF THE FREE????? YOU CAN KILL YOUR BABY WITH NO CONSEQUENCE IN THIS COUNTRY BUT DON'T GET CAUGHT WITH OUT THAT SEAT BELT ON!!!

For all of you who don't already know.....the seat belt law is only there to generate revenue and for compliance checks (valid licence, warrants, check for drugs alcohol etc....) Since when do you really think the nanny state cares about your safety? It's all about control my friends.....have a nice day and don't forget to buckle up and support you local abortion clinic.
