More crashes among young drivers, RAC Foundation finds

27 May 2014 Last updated at 08:58 BST

Young drivers are more likely to be involved in a crash than any other age group, figures from the RAC Foundation have shown.

Nearly 12% of accidents which leave people dead or injured involve drivers aged between 17 and 19.

However drivers of that age only make up 1.5% of all drivers.

Dyfed-Powys Police force area had the highest incidence of this type of accident, at 18.2%, or nearly one in five people hurt in accidents.

The Gwent force area was second-highest at 17% and North Wales joint third at 15.8%. South Wales was also above average at 15.2%.

BBC reporter Steffan Powell was talking to Oliver Hides from Radio Wales.
