Disturbing news from the Colorado Department of Transportation.
There were 96 deaths last year among drivers and passengers ages 16 to 20, compared with 91 such deaths in 2003.
Even more disturbing, 63 of the young people killed weren't wearing seat belts.
Nearly 80 percent of the deaths occurred in crashes involving teen drivers. Of the 96 victims, 57 were drivers and 39 were passengers.
C-DOT executive director Tom Norton says young, inexperienced drivers and a lack of seat belt use have proved to be a deadly combination.
There were also five victims last year who were 15, including one driver and four passengers. Three of the four passengers were riding with teen drivers and none wore seat belts.
