Excerpt
Excerpt: About 7:55 p.m. on September 20, 1995, a 1994 Toyota Camry driven by a 26-year-old female failed to stop for the red light at an intersection and collided with the left front of a 1985 Toyota Corolla. The weather was clear and dry and there were no visual obstructions. The air bags in the 1994 Toyota Camry deployed at impact. The driver sustained minor bruising on her inner arms and abdomen from contact with the air bag; th*e passenger-side air bag struck the back of the rear-facing child restraint system positioned in the right front passenger seat, breaking it in several places. The 5-month-old child in the restraint sustained fatal skull injuries. A 3-year-old child seated in a shield booster seat in the right rear vehicle seating position was not injured. All occupants of the 1985 Toyota Corolla were wearing their lap/shoulder belts. The driver and 10- year-old child who was seated in the right rear seating position sustained minor injuries. The adult occupying the right front seat was not injured. The owner?s manuals for the 1994 Toyota and for the rear-facing child restraint indicate that this type of child restraint system should never be used in the right front seat when the vehicle is equipped with an air bag for that position. These instructions were reinforced by two yellow and black labels, about 4 inches by 1 % inches, on each side of the child restraint with the words ?WARNING: Place this restraint in a vehicle seat that does NOT have an air bag.? The shoulder harness straps on the rear-facing child restraint system were not doubled back through the strap adjustment slide for proper securement, as directed by the restraint manufacturer?s instructions. Further, the canopy on the child restraint-to shade the child?s eyes from the sun was being used in the vehicle despite the restraint manufacturer?s instructions to the contrary.
