Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Apr 23, 2006
Hutchinson, KS

i was following up on the death of a 1 month that was ejected from a cosco child seat in a motor vehicle train accident. while following up on the death, i was looking at photographs of the vehicle from the investigating agency. i noticed there were no photographs of the car seat or the passenger side of the vehicle where the train had struck the vehicle. i went to the impound lot where the vehicle was stored and met the father of the deceased child. he was collecting property from the inside of the vehicle. he showed me a stroller and the car seat. the stroller had been ejected from the vehicle and was damaged and the car seat was still inside the vehicle. this car seat and stroller are sold as a set from k-mart and had been purchased in november of 2005 in hutchinson kansas. upon looking at the car seat which was rear facing in the vehicle and still strapped in the vehicle by the seat belt. i was informed by the captain of the sheriff's department that one of their officers trained to install child safety seats said the seat was not installed properly. my concern of the accident was that the strap that would have gone over the right shoulder of the child was completely undone from the latch on the back of the child safety seat. the strap on the left shoulder was almost completely undone and i photographed the routing of the strap before removing the seat from the vehicle. the owner of the seat gave me the following information off of the seat. model # 22-300-swb; 11/10/04 gbib. reg no pa-25334(cn) permit # 1780-333 dorel juvenile group inc. from the impact of the train to the passenger side rear 1/4 panel of the 20-03 explorer, the child was ejected from the child seat and died 3 hrs later from head injuries. from the investigation, i believe there may be a problem with the latching and holding ability on the back of the child safety seat. *jb
