Parents of Nevada teens often turn over their cars and keys to their young drivers with a fair amount of fear, and rightly so. The Nevada Department of Public Safety reports that in 2012, Clark County drivers between 16 and 20 years-old were involved in over 7,000 accidents. In over 4,000, the driver was at fault.
A mother who faced the worst-case scenario is working to make teen drivers safer. Her 15-year-old daughter was killed while riding with a 16-year-old driver and several other teens. The driver, who was speeding, lost control of his truck, struck a wall and flipped over.
