Fatal crash numbers way down in the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on May 1, 2015

With a third of the year in the books, roads in the Illinois Valley have been a lot safer this year than last.

La Salle County is well below the pace of a deadly 2014 in which 23 people were killed in 19 crashes. So far in 2015 four people have been killed in four separate crashes in La Salle County.

After four fatalities last year, one person so far this year has been killed in a crash in Bureau County. Putnam County had no crash fatalities last year and so far there have been none this year.

Statewide, 240 people have been killed in crashes which is six more than a year ago.
