COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - A new study shows texting and driving is now the leading cause of death of traffic deaths among teens, surpassing drinking and driving.  A report issued by Cohen Children's Medical Center in New York estimates more than three-thousand teens are killed nationwide annually from texting behind the wheel nationwide. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 2,700 teens die every year as a result of an alcohol involved crash.  The CDC has said drinking and driving among teens has been dropping while texting and driving has increased in the past several years
