BALTIMORE (AP) — The mother of a college student who died after he was struck by an elderly driver while on his bicycle is now teaching senior citizens about factors that may impair their driving ability.
Nathan Krosnopoler died four years ago. He had been struck six months earlier near the Johns Hopkins University campus in Baltimore, where he was a student. The driver received traffic tickets but was not criminally charged.
Krosnopoler’s mother, Susan Cohen, went on to found Americans for Older Driver Safety. On Sunday, she honored her son at the site of the crash. She will host a seminar on Monday at the Myerburg Senior Center in Baltimore.
Cohen says she would like to see legislation requiring elderly drivers in Maryland to renew their licenses in person every eight years.
