HSHS St. Mary's Hospital hosting car seat safety check event

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - HSHS St. Mary's Hospital is teaming up with the Macon County Health Department to offer free car seat safety checks on August 7.

This event will last from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. in the west parking lot of HSHS St. Mary's Hospital in Decatur.  Officials say motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death among children in the United States, and that placing children in age and size-appropriate car and booster seats reduces their risk for serious and fatal injuries by more than half.
