SALT LAKE CITY -- Families gathered Monday for a press conference at the Utah Department of Health to share their stories of a child they lost on Utah roads due to a car accident in 2013.

Last year, 18 teens were killed in car accidents. Officials say the fatality rate for drivers ages 16 to 19 is four times higher than drivers ages 25 to 69.

FOX 13’s Dave Nemeth was at the press conference. He has the stories from families who lost their children.
