Two Fellow Passengers Gravely Wounded Were Not Wearing Seatbelts
— A 16-year-old female was killed, and four more were injured during a car accident on Wednesday in Lexington, Missouri, after leaving school in the afternoon. According to reports, the Jeep carrying the five teenagers failed to give way and pulled onto U.S. 24, around the corner from their high school, directly in the path of a pick-up truck. The vehicle flipped down a small hill before it came to rest on its wheels.
Desirae Holder, 16, was taken by ambulance to Lafayette County Regional Hospital and was pronounced dead. The driver of the Jeep, a 16-year-old male, and another teenager, both of whom were not wearing seatbelts, were severely injured. Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) stated that the two teenage boys who sustained minor injuries were the only ones wearing seatbelts in the vehicle. The entire community of Lexington has joined together to mourn young Desirae’s life and provide support to Desirae’s family, the injured teens, their families, and classmates.
Grave injuries and death can be prevented by wearing seatbelts and practicing responsible driving. Drivers and vehicle owners should also have a first aid kit stashed in their trunks that they can easily access should they encounter an accident on the road, to provide first response care until medical professionals arrive at the scene.

Surviveware’s Large First Aid Kit continuously receives positive reviews from drivers. Ryan, an Amazon customer, has grown to love Surviveware’s first aid kits:
“I already had a first aid kit in my car. I was never really happy with it, but it was better than nothing. But after I bought Surviveware's Small First Aid kit for SAR and found that it was almost exactly what I needed, I knew that I could not go wrong with Surviveware's Large First Aid Kit. I was so confident about it that I bought two: one for each of our home vehicles.
It's every bit as good as the Small First Aid Kit, which is to say it's great. From the contents to how it's organized to the layout of the bag itself, you can tell that a great deal of thought went into every aspect of its design. Unlike so many first aid kits that tend to explode when you open them, I was relieved to see everything neatly laid out and labeled and organized.
Even better is that unlike a lot of big first aid kits that mostly contain a lot of different kinds of bandages, this kit has equipment for so much more. Throw in a tourniquet, and you're good to go for almost anything.
I like it this kit so much that I'm thinking about getting it as a gift for friends and family!”
