Back over accidents can cause serious personal injuries to children. Unfortunately, back over accidents continue to be reported all of the United States, Canada, and other areas. When a driver is backing a vehicle out of a driveway, parking space, or parking lot, it is often difficult to see small children who may be standing, walking or sitting behind the vehicle. While supervision of children is key to keeping them out of these dangerous situations, close observation and attention should be exercised any time that a driver is backing a vehicle out of a driveway, parking lot, or parking space. Taking a few extra moments and due care can make a world of a difference.

It was reported that the child suffered a serious head injury and was air lifted to a hospital in Halifax.
