Seatbelts are used in order to prevent people from hitting objects inside the vehicle and from being ejected from it in the event of an accident.
A female driver was involved a two-vehicle collision in Fountain Valley, but she fortunately survived because she was wearing her seatbelt when it occurred.
According to reports, the woman’s Toyota Camry collided with a Dodge Intrepid along Warner Avenue and Mount Hope Street. Because of the impact, the Camry flew into the air and struck a power pole.
The woman was trapped inside her car and was extricated from it by firefighters. She was then rushed to Fountain Valley Hospital to be treated for her injury, said reports.
