Dodge Neon with 10 people in it wrecks, 8 kids injured

An accident that unfolded in Newark, New Jersey, earlier this week fortunately could have been a lot worse. But the details should leave many people scratching their heads about why the children involved would have been put in that situation. 

According to police, 10 people who were packed into a compact car were involved in a car accident on Irvine Turner Boulevard in Newark. According to police, in addition to a 30-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, the 1995 Dodge Neon invovled in the accident had eight children from ages 17 to 1. The Neon crashed into a fence. 

The woman and three of the children were still in the hospital with their conditions described as "critical." The other five kids have already been released from the hospital, while the man's condition is stable. 

The accident happend at 1:30 a.m. Why a car with eight young children was out that late at night is not known. Police have also not said who was driving the car, and no charges have been filed yet. It also has not been disclosed what the children's relationship with the adults was. 

Anyone who knows anything about cars knows how difficult it would be to fit 10 people into a Neon safely. Most Neon's seat four or five people. It would be next to impossible to put 10 people in the car and have them all be properly restrained. 

Following the rules of the road does not just mean following traffic laws. It means making sure you aren't dangerously packing your car full of people. Drivers need to show more responsibility, especially when small children are involved.
