Wyoming Traffic Fatalities Decrease in 2013

October 21, 2013

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says traffic fatalities in the state have decreased this year.

Sgt. Steve Townsend tells KGWN-TV that 120 people died in traffic accidents in Wyoming last year. There have been only 67 traffic deaths as of Sept. 30 of this year.

Townsend says that even though the number of deaths has decreased, some people are still not buckling their seatbelts. He says the most common type of crash in Wyoming is the single-vehicle rollover. Of those types of crashes so far this year, 82.3 percent of the people who died were not properly restrained.
