Drowsy Driving 5K Fun Run Held

A group of Texas Tech students is trying to raise awareness of another danger on the roads this holiday season -- drowsy drivers. The Drowsy Driving 5K Fun Run was held Saturday morning on the Texas Tech campus.

A presentation about the dangers of driving while tired was given after the run. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that more 100,000 crashes occur because of driver fatigue each year, resulting in more than 1,500 deaths.
