Authorities say an elderly Leon County, FL driver could have lost his life and injured others, after he nearly runs head-on into a train

Bainbridge Public Safety Officers say 77-year-old Charlie Morrison was driving on Highway 84 last night (10/26) when he suddenly swerved off the road and straight towards an oncoming train.

Morrison stopped just feet from the tracks; now authorities are saying what happened was nothing short of miraculous.

Morrison was arrested for driving with a suspended license and returned to his family in Leon County, FL.

This user-friendly workbook was developed to offer concerned families a working roadmap (complete with actual exercises) on how to address the issue of driving safety with an older adult in your family. The workbook has been designed to provide peace of mind to families, help older drivers maintain their independence and dignity, and at the same time help prevent unnecessary deaths and injuries on our nation's roadways.
