Police are crediting proper use and installation of a child safety seat in a crash Monday that saw no injuries.

Indiana State Police were called out to a rollover crash in Huntington County around 9:50 AM on Old Fort Wayne Road, just northeast of Huntington. Police say a 2010 Dodge Journey, driven by 31-year old Jill Abbott of Roanoke, was heading southbound when for unknown reasons, her vehicle left the roadway, hit a concrete drainage structure, causing the vehicle to roll over several times.

Police say no injuries were reported in the crash. They say that the use of a seatbelt by Abbott and all three of her children being properly restrained in safety seats are credited for the family being able to walk away without anyone being hurt.
