Formatted Abstract/Summary
Transportation injury is the leading external cause of child deaths in Australia, and pedestrian deaths comprised approximately 25% of these over the last 4 years. There is evidence that the rate of low speed vehicle run-overs (LSVROs) in Queensland is significantly higher than the rest of Australia. Despite this, limited data are available on fatal and non-fatal LSVROs. There is no specific coding mechanism available to describe these events, resulting in inadequate description of the magnitude of the problem, the risk factors associated with LSVROs, and the associated morbidity and mortality. Epidemiological surveillance of both fatal and non-fatal LSVROs is essential to understand and describe the burden of injury. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of fatal and non-fatal LSVRO events among 0–15 year olds in Queensland from 1999 to 2008, to determine risk factors that can inform injury prevention strategies.
