Posted by wlpo on July 8, 2012

Halfway thru 2012 and Bureau County is well on its way to having more fatal crashes in several years.

According to IDOT figures, six people have died in five crashes this year in Bureau County.  In all of 2011, Bureau County had three killed in three fatal crashes.

Nine people have been killed so far this year in La Salle County in eight fatal crashes.  That’s on par with last year’s 17 killed in crashes.

Putnam County has had no one killed in a crash on a state road this year after one fatal crash last year.

Statewide, 479 people have been killed on the roads this year, up by 53 from this time last year.  Of those 479, 132 deaths were alcohol-related.
