Final 2012 traffic crash report released: 11 killed on Kandiyohi County roads
ST. PAUL -- A mild winter, a slight increase in miles traveled and a spike in motorcyclist deaths in 2012 are a few of the reasons Minnesota had its first increase in traffic deaths since 2007. The 395 traffic deaths in 2012 is a 7 percent increase from 368 deaths in 2011, yet represents a 40 percent decrease in deaths from a decade ago.
The final 2012 crash data were released Tuesday by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety's Office of Traffic Safety.
