Number of Wisconsin traffic deaths drop in October

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin traffic deaths fell along with the temperatures in October.

Preliminary figures from the state DOT show that 51 people died in highway crashes throughout the state last month. That’s 30 less than in September, four fewer than a year ago, and two less than the average for the past five Octobers.

But for 2012 as a whole, traffic deaths are still running almost 15 percent higher than the previous year.

531 people died in Wisconsin crashes from January through October, 69 more than in the same period of 2011. That includes 100 motorcycle deaths caused in part by a shorter winter and a warmer fall.
