THE BRONX - A new study by AAA says that the rate of crashes involving teenagers is higher than any other age group.

According to AAA, nearly 3,000 people were killed in crashes that involved a teen driver in 2013.

Friday marked day five of what is known as the "100 Deadliest Days," the time between Memorial Day and Labor Day when experts say that teen crash deaths rise.

AAA says that major distractions for teen drivers are their cellphones, friends and music.
