Highway Fatals Down But Most Happen Outstate

Minnesota State Highway Sergeant Curt Mower said the number of vehicle crash deaths on state roadways is lower than a year ago. Mower said so far this year, 64 people have died in highway crashes compared to 80 at this time last year. But the bad news for those who live in rural Minnesota is that 70% of those crashes happen outside the Twin Cities metro area. Mower said drivers are not yielding to oncoming traffic and not coming to a complete stop and those two behaviors can contribute to deadly crashes.
