Automobile-child pedestrian accidents more common outside parental supervision

March 26, 2015

LAS VEGAS — The majority of child pedestrian injuries relating to a motor vehicle occurred while children were unsupervised, near schools and bus stops, and during the afternoon and evening hours of spring, according to data presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting.

“Automobile vs. pedestrian accidents in the urban setting are among the most common causes of polytrauma and isolated long bone fractures in children and adolescents,” Alexa J. Karkenny, MD, from Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, and colleagues wrote. “While general details about injury scenes have been delineated by some researchers, fine details, such as proximity to bus stops or playgrounds, are not commonly included in auto vs. pedestrian injury analyses.”
