OXFORD — More than 200 student leaders from nine high schools in north Alabama assembled at Oxford Civic Center Thursday to hear firsthand stories of the permanent pain that can result from carelessness behind the wheel of a vehicle.

The Teen Driving Safety Summit presented safety principles featured in the URKEYS2DRV (Your Keys to Drive) program to students representing schools in Calhoun, Cleburne, St. Clair, Talladega and Jefferson counties.
