DES MOINES, Iowa —  Before you head on the road, it’s important to make sure your child is buckled in properly and securely to increase their chances of survival in a crash.

The CDC reports motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children in the United States.

UnityPoint offers resources for families to help find the right car seat, and also has a safety store inside the hospital.
