WAPAKONETA — Celina resident Julie Baldwin joined Ohio’s “Saved by the Belt” club this week after her safety belt saved her from potential life-threatening injuries in an incident that occurred Feb. 5 in Auglaize County.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. M. Shay Seabolt, assistant commander of the patrol’s Wapakoneta post, presented Baldwin with a “Saved by the Belt” certificate signed by Thomas Stickrath, director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety, and patrol Superintendent Col. Richard Fambro.

Baldwin also received a “Saved by the Belt” license plate bracket.

“Julie is a living testimony of the effectiveness of safety belts,” Seabolt said. “Everyone needs to buckle up every trip, every time.”

He said statistics s how that 457 people in Ohio were killed in traffic crashes in 2019 where a safety belt was not in use.
