PENNSYLVANIA -

A mom from Pennsylvania is reminding parents about the importance of car seat safety, and her message is going viral.

Jenna Rabberman was involved in a car accident when her Honda CRV was hit with her baby and toddler inside.

The car was a mangled mess, but Rabberman says her children escaped without a scratch.

She is thanking their safety seats.

"It's very easy to get caught up in 'we've got to go, we've got to go' but take a moment, slow down, everything else can be replaced, the seats, the car, everything,” says Rabberman. “My kids? No way."

According to paramedics, the car seats saved the kids' lives.

Both were rear-facing.
