Buckle Up!

McLean District commanders recently recognized local resident, Margrete Klein, with a “Saved by the Belt” award. Ms. Klein was involved in a serious, multi-vehicle crash on Route 123 in February 2014. Her Lexus was struck by a distracted driver and thrown airborne into oncoming lanes, landing on top of two other vehicles. Fortunately, Klein escaped serious injury and she attributes the seat belt to this.
