Car crashes are one of the leading causes of death for teenagers, with teen drivers four times as likely to be involved in a crash as adult drivers. And for teens with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, the risks are even higher.

A study at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center found a way to reduce driver inattention among teens with ADHD. On Cincinnati Edition we discuss the results of the study and how it helped one young driver.
