Sometimes it is better to leave the young ones in the vehicle for safety sake. The post just had me recall a situation I saw once where one of those 15 passenger vans had a flat. all the occupants stayed inside to enjoy the A/C I suppose while the lucky/unlucky driver got to change the tire. The van wasnt full but it had at least 10 people in it. Avg. weight per person, 150 lbs/ x 10 = 1500lbs shifting ! That had to be scary when they moved about even a little. Sounds like you did everything right, just one of those times that bad things happen to good people.
Thanx for the ok to repost. Maybe we can help prevent an injury or something worse....
