No drop in Washington County traffic deaths
Washington County's traffic crash stats remained static last year, reflecting a statewide trend.
Eleven people were killed in crashes in Washington County in 2010, according to preliminary data by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. Statewide, there were at least 410 people killed on Minnesota roads last year.
The statistics will increase after all 2010 crash reports are submitted. A final report will be released later this year.
