According to The Denver Post, a “9-month-old New Castle boy died in a car accident on Interstate 70 on Sunday after he was ejected from his car seat.” Investigators believe that the boy was not buckled into his seat at the time of the accident. They also believe that alcohol and drugs were not involved. The driver of the car, the boy’s mother, was wearing her seat belt and “was hospitalized with unknown injuries.” The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
For children between the ages of 2 and 14, automobile “accidents are the leading cause of death.” According to an article at articlebase, nearly 2,000 children die in car accidents every year and nearly 250,000 are injured. These fatalities represent 5% of all car accident fatalities.
