The CDC reports that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens.
In 2014, 2,138 teens ages 15 to 19 died in motor vehicle crashes.
Six teens ages 16 to 19 die every day from motor vehicle injuries.
Per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash.
Fortunately, teen motor vehicle crashes are preventable, and proven strategies can improve the safety of young drivers on the road.
