LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) --  A national teen driving safety program came to Papa John's Cardinal Stadium to teach student drivers.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the U.S., likely because they're inexperienced drivers.

In an effort to teach teen drivers how to be safe on the road, drivers were able to get behind the wheel in a controlled environment, and learn about emergency breaking and skid control, something they likely won't get in a high school driver's ed class.

According to the CDC, in 2010 seven teens between the ages of 16 and 19 died every day in a car crash.

Teen drivers are also three times more likely than older drivers to be involved in a fatal crash.
