Number of children killed by drunk drivers drops

The biggest threat remains their own drivers.

(AP) - A new study finds the number of children killed by drunken motorists has gone down, but the biggest threat remains their own drivers.

Researchers analyzed traffic deaths from 2000 to 2010, and found more than 2,300 passengers younger than 15 were killed in crashes involving a drunk driver.

Almost two-thirds of those kids were not wearing seat belts.

Texas and California had the most deaths among kids riding with drunken drivers.
