Car Crash Deaths Increase Starting at Age 12

Child passengers, ages 12 to 17, are more likely to die in a car crash than younger children, according to a study released today in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. This risk increases with each teenage year. Conducted as part of an ongoing research collaboration between The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, the study offers evidence-based guidelines for parents and policymakers to help protect this vulnerable age group.
