Highway Death Toll Rising

Minnesota drivers are still killing themselves and others in tragic crashes.
State Patrol Sergeant Curt Mower said the yearly death toll is closing in on last year's pace. More than a hundred people have died in highway crashes this year so far compared to 114 last year at this time. And one more motorcyclist has died this year compared to last. Mower said a substantial number of people who die were not wearing their seat belts, most of them thrown from the vehicle. A bill in the Minnesota Senate would establish seat belt usage a primary offense and would allow law enforcement to stop drivers for not buckling up.
