Where is the topic sentence in this paragraph?
22. There is much concern over accidents among children. In the age
group from 15 to 24 years, pedestrian deaths constitute only twelve percent
of the total for the group. In the age group from 0 to 14 years, the
percentage is over sixty. There are five times as many deaths among young
children as among youth. Yet people 65 years of age or older suffer an even
greater percentage of pedestrian deaths (sixty-six percent) than do
children! Such facts are useful in indicating where accident-prevention
efforts should be concentrated.
