Stay rear facing: The aap recently recommended that babies remain rear facing until at least 2 yrs, or later if under the maximum weight for that seat. Car seats with "side impact protection" are being marketed but there is not yet standard testing for this feature. If possible, the middle of the back seat is safest.

Hard to say: The potential for such an injury would depend on the kids age/size and how they were positioned in the car.
