We reviewed the coroner's records of all fatal bicycle accidents occurring in children (aged 0 to 15 years) in Ontario (pediatric population, 2,007,230) between January 1, 1985 and December 31, 1989.
The injuries sustained were documented and scored with anatomical injury scores (Abbreviated Injury Score 1985 and Injury Severity Score) and categorized as unsurvivable or survivable.
The causes and circumstances were documented from police accident reports.
Eighty-one deaths resulted from bicycle accidents, an annual mortality rate of 1.44 deaths per 100,000 children per year.
