MAHOMET -- Students at Mahomet-Seymour High School got a life saving lesson Tuesday. State police brought the "rollover simulator" to school. It shows the difference wearing a seat belt can make in an accident.

State police say they've seen an increase in deadly crash in the state this year. They say it's another reason to remind new drivers about seat belt safety. Officials say, with Memorial Day approaching, it marks "100 Deadly Days of Summer;" a time where there's an increase in deadly accidents.
