Minnesota Traffic Deaths Up In 2012

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota State Patrol reports three traffic fatalities statewide, over the weekend, through New Year's Eve. This brings the preliminary total for 2012 to 378 people dead as a result of crashes on Minnesota roads. That is ten more than the previous year. 2012 was not an improvement in the Mankato District either, as 20 people died in traffic accidents, compared to 18 in 2011.
