What was supposed to be a happy family vacation filled with memories turned into a tragedy following a fatal single vehicle accident that happened on the way to Disney. Furthermore, the horrific accident is yet another reminder that seatbelts can in fact save lives. The accident occurred when the vehicle carrying the family from Texas was traveling east on Interstate 20, and near the Highway 80 exit the vehicle left the road, and hit the median. As a result, the driver overcorrected and rolled the vehicle.
Sadly, as the vehicle rolled end over end, six of the eight occupants in the car were ejected, and tragically five of them died instantly. Likewise, none of the people killed were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. Those who died include parents Trudi and Michael Harman, and their three children ages 5, 7, and 15. The remaining three family members were transported to a nearby hospital, and have non-life-threatening injuries.
