2014 has been a deadly year so far on La Salle County roads.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, 11 people have died in eight fatal crashes, matching all of last year’s fatalities. The number of deaths is tied for fifth highest of all Illinois counties.

In Bureau County, one person has died on state roads this year. That’s well below last year’s pace when six people were killed.
So far in Putnam County there have been no fatal crashes. Last year two people were killed in one fatal crash in Putnam County.

Statewide, 399 people have been killed in crashes, down almost a hundred from this time last year.
