Highway Patrol officers honored a driver in St. Clairsville Friday whose decision to wear his seatbelt ended up being crucial.
Kennard Miller’s car was hit by a truck on State Route 7 in Monroe County, but his injuries were minimized by his safety belt.
The Patrol presented him with a ‘Saved by the Belt’ award, which recognizes Ohio drivers who have benefited from making safe choices.
Kennard also received a special ‘Saved by the Belt’ license plate bracket.
The award was given out by none other than his own son Jared, a trooper from the Marietta post.
