   An Exeter family that lost a daughter nine months ago to a drunken driver lost a son during another car accident, police said.

   Kyle Goodwin, 16, was not wearing a seat belt, and died after his Volvo rolled off a slick road in Three Rivers last Friday, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

   Goodwin's 16-year-old passenger was not hurt, but he was wearing a seat belt. Investigators have not released his name.

   "That is why I want to remind everyone of the extreme life or
 death importance of wearing seat belts," CHP officer Scott Jobingers. The news shocked the family, which was still grieving the death of  20-year-old Casey Goodwin. She died on March 13, 2003, in Kettleman City crash with a drunken driver.

   "This is too much, they just got through their first Christmas without Casey," said Elizabeth LaMar, a family friend.

   Casey and Kyle's mother, Lynne Goodwin, works for the Tulare County Friday Night Live organization, a youth program that encourages teens not to drink and drive. Casey and Kyle were also active with the organization.
