U-Va., INOVA to study older drivers

A partnership between the University of Virginia and INOVA Fairfax Hospital has received a $2.5 million federal grant to set up a center that will study older drivers and passengers.

University officials say the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration grant will establish an Engineering Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network Center. The grant will help U.Va.'s Institute on Aging continue to focus on research that will promote independent living for aging Americans.

The center will provide engineering and medical expertise in crash investigation, analysis of automobile crash data, impact biomechanics and research and community outreach.
