Backover Accidents More Common than You Think

posted in: News, Safety | 0

While it seems that everyone knows someone with a story about a backover accident, you may not realize how frequently drivers back into other cars, shopping carts, mailboxes, landscaping, and most tragically, children. According to KidsAndCars.org, “In the U.S. at least fifty children are being backed over by vehicles EVERY week. Forty-eight (48) are treated in hospital emergency rooms and at least two (2) children are fatally injured every WEEK.”

Just today USA Today posted this alarming video of a driver backing into two women and a stroller with a child.
