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
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.
