This week’s resource is the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) teen driver fact sheet.
The CDC says that motor vehicle accidents are the leading U.S. cause of teen deaths, accounting for more than one in three deaths. This site has some valuable information such as the size of this problem, who is at risk, risk factors and how to prevent these accidents.
They include a section specifically for traumatic brain injury (TBI), citing 1.4 million cases a year in the U.S. alone.
