Child who died in car crash not in car seat

Posted on March 20th, 2010 by Zane Cagle

A toddler died in a car accident earlier this month in a two-car accident that sent five people to the hospital.

The state Highway Patrol said that the child was not in a child car seat or wearing a normal seat belt when the car he was riding in stalled on the highway. An SUV, unable to avoid the collision, slammed into the car, fatally injuring the toddler, who died two days later from head trauma. According to reports, the driver of the car, and mother of the child, had been ticketed twice for failing to restrain a child in a car seat.

Almost every state has a law requiring children of a certain age or size to be in a car seat. Failing to do so could make you liable for injury.
