(AP) A century-old school for students to learn to safely drive has been closed in Florida amid a statewide opioid crisis.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the school closed Tuesday because of a rising opioid crisis in the Sunshine State.

The facility is in the rural town of St. Petersburg and serves students from St. Mary Catholic High School.
