CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia's efforts to improve highway safety are getting help from the federal government.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has awarded more than $859,000 to the Governor's Highway Safety Office.

The grant will be used to improve driver behavior and performance, and to reduce deaths and injuries from motor vehicle-related accidents.

U.S. Senators Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin announced the funding Monday.
