ST. PAUL -- The state Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety has announced that at least 410 people were killed in crashes last year on the state's highways.

The preliminary numbers were released Monday and the department projects that the final 2010 count will be close to 420 people, very close to the 2009 total fatalities of 421, which was the lowest number of annual traffic deaths since 1944. The final statistics will be released this summer.
