Abstract

Child passenger safety has been a major public health victory, but there is still work to be done. This case presentation is about a 5-year-old boy who placed the shoulder portion of the lap-shoulder seat belt behind his back who was recently killed in a motor vehicle crash.

Also presented are important resources for trauma nurses to share with families to improve travel safety.
