KidsAndCars.org was devastated to hear that a 6-year-old boy was backed over and killed by a pickup truck driven by his great grandfather in a driveway of a home in Hardin County yesterday (6/17/20). 

 

Every week in the U.S. at least 50 children are backed over because a driver could not see them. Backovers are not only predictable, they are also 100% preventable

 

Tragically, children age 5 and under are the most at-risk of being backed over and in the majority of cases the driver is a direct relative or loved one. Below are additional resources for more information on backovers.
