According to data collected by the Fatal Accident Reporting System (FARS) of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 127 children and youth, aged 19 or less, were killed in 1987 while riding in the back of pickup trucks.1 Approximately 1000 more are injured yearly. The Committee is concerned about this largely preventable means of injury to children.
