Senior Citizens and Driving

Accidents involving elderly drivers are making headlines and raising questions about if seniors should be driving.

Yesterday, a judge found an 89-year-old California man guilty of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence after authorities say he hit the gas instead of the brakes, killing 10 people and injuring 70 at an outdoor market.

Just this week, an elderly Arkansas woman crashed through the front of a grocery store hitting a customer.  Authorities say the 86-year-driver also hit the gas instead of the brakes.

Now questions are being raised about elderly drivers.
