More than 10,000 people were killed in alcohol-related vehicle crashes in 2012, according to recent data released by the CDC.
The report, released in January, found that younger people were most at risk of being involved in a drunk driving crash. One out of every three drivers with blood alcohol levels of 0.08% or higher involved in fatal crashes were between 21 and 24 years of age. Of the 1,168 traffic deaths among children ages 0 to 14 in 2012, 239, or 20% involved a drunk driver, the CDC stated. More than half of those children were riding with the alcohol-impaired driver.
