Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - HSHS St. Mary's Hospital officials are teaming up with the Macon County Health Department to offer free car seat safety checks on July 10.

The safety checks will take place in the west parking lot of HSHS St. Mary's Hospital from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.  Officials say motor-vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death among children in this country, and that ensuring that your child is in an age and size-appropriate seat could reduce the risk of serious and fatal injuries by more than half.

This event is free and open to the public.  For more information about these safety checks, visit
