Wyoming Traffic Fatalities Decrease In 2013

November 4, 2013

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says traffic fatalities in the state have decreased this year.

According to Sgt. Steve Townsend, 120 people died in traffic accidents in Wyoming last year. There were only 67 traffic deaths through the end of September this year.

Townsend says that even though the number of deaths has decreased, some people are still not buckling their seat belts. He says the most common type of crash in Wyoming is the single-vehicle rollover. Of those types of crashes so far this year, 82.3 percent of the people who died were not properly restrained.
