NHTSA Neglects Deaths and Injuries of Children in Back Seats for Decades

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

“Liz and Andrew Warner of Littleton lost their 17-month-old daughter, Taylor.

It was head trauma. The seat hit her in the face and that’s what caused the brain bleed they couldn’t stop,” Liz Warner said.

Taylor was in her car seat when the Warners’ 2010 Honda Odyssey was rear ended.  The driver’s seat collapsed on impact and struck Taylor in the face. She never regained consciousness.

“That was it. We didn’t get to know her anymore,” Liz Warner said.

After the Warners buried their baby girl, they realized they were not alone. According to the Center for Auto Safety, 898 children have been killed in rear-end collisions in the past 15 years, all of them sitting in the back seat.”  See  http://kdvr.com/2016/04/28/front-seat-hidden-danger-kills-children-in-cars/
