Woman Charged With Homicide Because of Improperly Installed Car Seat

Spokane County prosecutors charged a Post Falls woman with vehicular homicide yesterday in the death of her infant daughter, because the baby's car seat was improperly installed.

We've warned you about everything else; speeding, roadkill, watching for bicyclists and pedestrians, the dangers of drag racing, etc. etc. So here's another one to add to your list; make sure you're installing car seats correctly. AND in the right seat. The woman in this story had the car seat in the front seat.
