Fatal crash numbers slow down in the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2016

While the goal is no fatal crashes, things were quieter on La Salle County roads last month in comparison to the rest of the year.

There were no fatal wrecks last month in either Bureau or Putnam County while La Salle County had just two. Two people were killed in the La Salle County crashes.

For the year, 25 people have been killed in 20 crashes in La Salle. That’s compared to 13 fatal crashes all of last year. La Salle County has seen the eight most people killed in wrecks in all of Illinois this year.

Bureau County has had nine people killed in nine wrecks this year which is already more than last year. One person has died on Putnam County roads through September, the same as all of last year.
