Child Traffic Deaths Drop 43 Percent Over Decade

ATLANTA (AP) - A new report shows fewer children are dying in traffic accidents, and officials say that's because more young kids are buckled up.
    
Over a decade, the number of children 12 and under who died in crashes dropped by 43 percent. Health officials say increased use of car seats and booster seats drove the decline.
    
Still, a third of the 650 children who died in 2011 were not buckled up. That was the case in almost half of the black and Hispanic deaths compared to a quarter of white deaths.
    
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the report on Tuesday.

    Should Aaron Hernandez's conviction have been tossed?

    Thursday, November 8 2018 1:53 AM EST2018-11-08 06:53:29 GMT

    BOSTON (AP) - The highest court in Massachusetts will consider whether the state should scrap a legal principle that erased the murder conviction of Aaron Hernandez after the former New England Patriots player killed himself in prison.   At issue in the case before the Supreme Judicial Court on Thursday is a rule that holds that a defendant who dies before an appeal is heard should no longer be considered guilty in the eyes of the law.
