Fatal Crashes Reach Five-Year High in LaSalle, Bureau Counties

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2016

The Illinois Valley is at a five-year high for fatal crashes, and there are still two months left in the year.

LaSalle County roads are the sixth-most dangerous in terms of deadly wrecks. So far this year 29 people have been killed in 24 crashes. That’s more than twice as many deaths on almost twice as many crashes when compared to all of 2015.

Bureau County has had 10 deaths in 10 fatal crashes. The number of fatal accidents is once again higher than the year before, when there were 8 of each.

The good news is that Putnam County roads have been very safe by comparison. Only one person has been killed in one crash in the county.
