12 Investigates: Dozens of children injured every week by cars backing up

Blind spots in big vehicles can be a very real danger to small children. According to the child safety group KidsAndCars.org as many as 50 children are involved in back over incidents every week in the United States. Sadly, in 70 percent of cases, it's the parent who made the mistake.

For Brian and Amanda Bayers, the danger became their reality.
    
"I went flying out the back door basically to see him on the driveway... He had already been hit at that point in time. I had backed over him," said Brian Bayers.
