In Fillmore, Utah, a fatal car crash took the lives of three people. A driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee smashed into a Honda that carried three people. The driver of the Jeep was going the wrong way down I-15 when she changed the lives of her victims forever.
Three people died while one is in critical condition. Jessie N. Wilkerson, 18, was the driver of the Jeep that went in the wrong direction. After the fatal crash, police found a bottle of alcohol behind her seat…Now she is dead and took two other lives with her.
25-year-old Larry J. Martin, who was driving the Honda, was killed by the drunk driver on impact. He wore his seatbelt and did everything right but Wilkerson’s drunk driving was no match for the smaller car’s safety measures. A conflicting report from the Salt Lake Tribune, says he had not worn his seatbelt when Wilkerson drove her Jeep into the front of his car.
In the back of the Honda, 27-year-old Kaela Hernandez was sleeping. She had not been wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle in the crash and died on impact.
In the passenger seat of the Honda, 29-year-old Joseph C. Martin wore his seatbelt and survived the crash. But he is currently in the hospital suffering from serious injuries.
The three innocents in the Honda were reportedly driving to a business convention in order to further their careers. Wilkerson took that away from them when she decided to drink and drive.
The drunk driver was not wearing her seatbelt either. Now she is gone. Remember to buckle your seat belt no matter what seat you’re in. Even if you are in the backseat, a seatbelt can save your life. If you get into a car accident, you can be thrown through the windshield if you’re not wearing it and be killed on impact. Save your own life and wear your belt.
