  1. Non-traffic child pedestrian injuries.

    Article - En anglais

    All non-traffic child pedestrian deaths and injuries resulting in hospitalization in the Auckland region over a 5 year period were identified from coroner's and hospital records.

    There were eight deaths (0,77/ 100 000 children per year) and 91 hospital admissions (8.7/100000 children per year).

    Close to half (48%) of the non-traffic pedestrian injury admissions had been misclassified as traffic pedestrian injuries.

    Eighty-seven per cent of the non-traffic pedestrian injury deaths and 93% of the injuries occurred in residential driveways, most often involving a child run over by a reversing vehicle.

    Further studies are required to determine the most effective strategies for the prevention of non-traffic child pedestrian injuries.
