so sad and sorry for this tragedy... having a vehicle that is not big enough for a family is something to think about if you are going to have large purchases to displace a person/seatbelt... that is the first priority for a parent. and i wouldn't call this an ordinary mistake (unless you were a child) and i don't think it is something ANY driver can relate to.

The daughters that perished in this horrible accident were ages 22 and 24, and the mother was 34 years old? It does not say "step-mother." She gave birth at 10 years old to her first daughter? And why in the world would they have let this man drive if he had only 3 hours of broken sleep in the previous 24 hours - is this "planning"?
