Letter to the Editor: Seat-belt reports were all wrong

Thursday, April 12, 2007

To the editor:In response to the April 30, 2007, story "Five killed in Massac County crash" posted on your Web site: All of the reports saying that Luke Slusher wasn't wearing his seat belt are completely wrong. I know for a fact that he was wearing his seat belt. I was sitting right beside him in the van, and I was the one who helped him buckle in his seat belt. Also, Luke and Andrew are both 22 years old, not 21. Another thing to consider is that Luke was not the only one drinking, Everyone in that van was drunk, including myself. I just wanted to clear all of this up. I feel I owe it to Luke and myself. Thank you.
