VERMONT – Vermont State Police are crediting a child safety seat for helping protect a baby during a car accident.

A one-year-old was involved in a rollover crash on I-89 Wednesday. The trooper who inspected his seat found that it was correctly installed and adjusted and said it saved the baby from substantial injury.

State Police remind all residents that all infants under one-year-old and weighing less than 20 pounds must ride rear-facing in an approved child restraint.

Infant seats must not be placed in front of an active air bag.

All children up to the age of eight must ride in an approved child restraint. All children ages eight to 18 must ride in an approved child restraint or safety belt system.
