The top three causes of teen death in the U.S. are accidents, homicides, and suicides. Each of these problems is linked to substance abuse. Make sure your teen knows about the dangers of driving under the influence - and pay attention to his/her whereabouts.

GRESHAM, Oregon (CBS/AP) We're not sure why Marcia Brandon was in such a big hurry, but Oregon State Police say the 82-year-old woman got a speeding ticket Thursday for driving twice the posted speed limit.

That means she was clocked at 110 mph.

KVAL-TV reports a trooper spotted Brandon's car doing 110 on Highway 26 west of Gresham - that's east of Portland.

The octagenarian said she was on her way to an appointment and wasn't aware she was going that fast.

She might be in less of a hurry to pay the fine...which is $1,103.
