Inline Skating Safety

The most serious crashes involve cars, drivers can't stop fast enough to avoid skaters in the road. Others happen when skaters fall and often result in a wrist injury. Instructor Krista Heubusch says accidents happen because people fail to take a lesson and learn how to do it properly. In addition, they don't wear protective gear. Dr. Tillman Jolly, emergency room physician, says the most lethal type of injury would be a head injury and says wearing a helmet is a good idea for anyone new to the sport. Ann Brown, Consumer Product Safety Commission says always wear protective hear, helmet, gloves, wrist, elbow and knee guards. This video is from the Insurance Information Institute.
