Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. In 2010, 655 children (under the age of 13 riding in cars and trucks) were killed in crashes. Of those killed, more than 1 in 3 were unrestrained.
According to the CDC, placing children in age- and size- appropriate car seats and booster seats reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.
Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 1 through 12 years old. An average of 2 children were killed and 325 were injured each day, based on NHTSA crash data in 2010. This fatality rate could be reduced by about half if the correct car seat were always used.
