Police have determined that an 11-month-old infant that was thrown from a vehicle in a Federal Way roll over crash was in a car seat that was not properly installed reports King5TV.com. Read more about the accident here.
The infant, a little boy, suffered critical head injuries and the driver, a 30-year-old man, had to be extricated from the Mercury Sable which rolled several times after the driver lost control at Southwest 356th Street. Both the baby and the man are being treated at Harborview Medical Center but their conditions have not been released.
This accident illustrates the importance of proper installation of infant and toddler seats to insure a child’s safety. Inspection stations are available to verify that an infant seat or booster seat is properly installed. In Bellevue, AAA Washington performs the inspections. In Seattle, Children’s Hospital, Carter Motors, Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic , The Car Seat Lady, and Swedish Medical Center perform the inspections.
