But some parts of the country had much worse fatality rates than others. The majority, 52 percent, of children who were in a fatal car crash lived in the South. And across all states, 43 percent of children who died were improperly restrained or not restrained at all, according to Faisal Qureshi, an associate professor of surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and an author of the study.

A grieving mother has bravely released harrowing footage of the crash which killed her 12-year-old son when he wasn’t wearing a seat belt. Amar Atwal was travelling as a back seat passenger in a Mitsubishi Outlander when it was hit by a speeding taxi in May 2015. The schoolboy was thrown from the vehicle and died two days after the collision on Hollyhedge Road in West Bromwich, West Midlands. Speeding taxi driver Nadeem Hussain, 35, had ignored ‘give way’ instructions when he drove across the junction into the car without stopping or braking. He was jailed for six years in December after a jury found him guilty of causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. On Monday, Amar’s mother Sukhi Atwal released CCTV footage of the horrific crash as she joined police to start a week-long seat belt awareness campaign.

A teenage driver was streaming to Facebook Live while she drove along a Pennsylvania highway just before a tractor-trailer rear ended her vehicle after midnight Tuesday, killing her and a passenger in a fiery wreck. Brooke Miranda Hughes, 18, was behind the wheel on Interstate 380 near Tobyhanna as she live-streamed her car ride with 19-year-old friend, Chaniya Morrison-Toomey, who can be heard saying “Are you going live?” in the now-deleted footage, according to the Associated Press. Before Hughes could answer, bright lights flash inside the car and sounds of screeching tires can be heard, followed by seven-minutes of blackness, the Scranton Times-Tribune reported. The teens were declared dead at the scene and were driving on a spare tire, according to Pennsylvania State Trooper Dave Peters. WNEP At the end of the eight-minute video, a man is heard speaking and a blurry, bearded face can be seen before it ends. Michael Jay Parks, the driver of the tractor-trailer, was unhurt in the deadly accident. Investigators told the Scranton Times-Tribune that it is too early to determine if Parks will be charged. The Monroe County Coroner’s Office conducted autopsies on the teens on Wednesday. In their autopsy reports, it states investigators could not visually identify Hughes and Morrison-Toomey due to the car burning. State Police said the Facebook Live video will be used as evidence in their investigation. “People watching Live video can report potential violations of our Community Standards, and we will take the appropriate action,” Andrea Saul, a Facebook spokeswoman, explained to the Scranton Times-Tribune. “We also encourage people to contact law enforcement if they see a Live stream in which someone is in danger.” A GoFundMe page has been set up by friends and family of Morrison-Toomey to pay for her funeral expenses.

A 10 percent improvement nationally in the use of appropriate child restraints in cars, they predict, would decrease the national child crash fatality rate significantly, cutting it from 0.94 per 100,000 to 0.56 per 100,000.

The shocking clip shows the Vauxhall Astra taxi speeding across a cross-roads junction straight into the right-hand side of the Mitsubishi. Debris can be seen flying from the 4×4 as it careers sideways into a tree at the side of the road before flipping into the air. Sukhi, who lives in Great Barr, Birmingham, said her son could have been saved if he was wearing a seat belt. She added: “We will never get over the loss of Amar. He was such a bright, intelligent, fun-loving boy. “He was an innocent victim of the crash and there is now a huge hole which can never be filled in our lives.

He said: “I regularly go around schools to give road safety advice and urge pupils to be strapped in. “It can prevent serious injuries or even save your life. “It has been the law for more than 30 years to wear a seatbelt and only takes a few seconds to buckle up, but it is still surprising the amount of people who don’t. “It is very brave of Sukhi to share her experience and hopefully it will hit home how wearing a seatbelt can make a difference. “She doesn’t want any other family to suffer the heartbreak she has had to endure.” Birmingham Crown Court heard in December how Amar had kissed his mother, telling her he loved her, just hours before the crash that claimed his life. In a victim impact statement, his mother also revealed his kidneys, heart, liver and pancreas had been donated to help save five lives. She told the court she was “really proud that other lives had been saved by her son.”

The court heard that Amar’s 12-year-old cousin suffered multiple leg fractures in the crash and may now be left with one leg shorter than the other. The Mitsubishi driver also suffered a brain injury, which has left her with significant restricted eye movement and profound psychological impairment. Dad-of-four Hussain, from Dudley, West Mids., told the court he was “truly sorry” for his actions, but Judge Francis Laird QC said he had shown no “true remorse”. The taxi driver was also banned from driving for seven years and ordered to complete an extended driving test. Judge Francis Laird QC said: “The footage reveals a ferocious impact. “You walked away with relatively minor injuries but the consequences for those in the Mitsubishi were truly horrific. “The effects of what you did on that fateful afternoon will last with others for the rest of their lives. “You have presented as a man drowning in self-pity for your own predicament. I have found there is no true remorse within you for what you did.” Officers from Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) will also be monitoring motorways and other routes across the Midlands as part of the week-long campaign. Drivers who are pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt face a £100 fine.
