Study: Doctor involvement, reporting help reduce crash injuries among older drivers
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A major study conducted in Canada suggests that there's a serious drop in crash injuries among elderly drivers when their doctors warn them, and tell driving authorities, that their patients are not medically fit to be on the road.
The study, in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine, couldn't tell if the improvement was because those patients drove less, or drove more carefully once the doctors pointed out the risk.
By one U.S. estimate, about 600,000 older drivers a year quit because of health conditions. But there are no clear-cut guidelines to tell who really needs to give up their licenses because of health problems. Only a few states require doctors to report drivers with worrisome health conditions to licensing authorities.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
