Tough Year On Bureau County Roads

Posted by wlpo on December 31, 2012

2012 has proved to be a more deadly year on the roads of Bureau County than quite some time.

According to Illinois Department of Transportation numbers, there have been eight people killed in seven fatal crashes this year in Bureau County.  Last year there were only three fatalities.  Of the seven fatal crashes in Bureau County this year, one involved a motorcycle.

La Salle County has had 11 people killed in ten fatal crashes this year.  That’s down from 17 deaths last year and way from 2007 when 32 people died in crashes on La Salle County roads.  Included in the driving deaths this year in La Salle County is two motorcycle crashes, one involving a semi and another where a pedestrian was killed.

For the third time in four years, Putnam County hasn’t had a death due to a crash on a state road.
