Much Better Numbers with 2011 Minnesota Highway Deaths

Comments Off

The final numbers from the Department of Public Safety (DPS) show that 2011 Minnesota highway deaths were at a record low. The state's death count was 368 deaths on Minnesota roads last year, the lowest annual figure since 1944 when 356 people were killed..

Unfortunately, these numbers would be a lot better if it wasn't for the 43 deaths in July and the 13 in the first week of August. It is of great concern that a 5 week period made up such a large part of all the yearly deaths.

With any death in a Minnesota motor vehicle collision, there are a number of issues that will need to be reviewed. My partner, Joe Crumley, addressed this topic in a recent article for the Minnesota Lawyers Trial magazine and I was interviewed last year on the same topic
