Deadly year so far on La Salle and Bureau County roads

Posted by wlpo on June 6, 2016

With more than half the year left, La Salle County is well on its way to blowing by last year’s fatal crash numbers.

Through May, 11 people have died in 10 separate crashes on La Salle County roads. Fourteen people were killed in 13 crashes all of last year. Only five counties out of 102 have seen more fatal crashes than La Salle County in 2016.

In Bureau County, seven people have died this year in seven different crashes this year. That’s also way ahead of last year’s numbers when eight people were killed in eight crashes.

In Putnam County, one person has been killed in a car crash this year after just one the year before.
