Many kiddos are heading back to school today, and over the next couple of weeks. 

As schools opened last year (between August 14th and September 30th) MedStar crews responded to 19 pediatric auto/pedestrian crashes for kiddos between the ages of 6 and 18. 

15 kids were transported to area hospitals. 

9 of these incidents occurred between 7:30am and 9:00am, or between 3:00pm and 6:00pm.

It’s been a LONG time since drivers have seen kids walking to school, or waiting at the bus stop.

Drivers, kids and parents – please use caution as school’s re-open for in-person learning the next couple of weeks!
