Minnesota Traffic Deaths Surpass 100 For 2014

Deaths on the roads of Minnesota have surpassed 100 by mid-may.

The unenviable landmark was reached following a motorcycle crash that killed two people and a single vehicle rollover last weekend, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety.

Howard Ogaard and his passenger, Beverly Palmer, were both killed in a single-vehicle motorcycle crash in Alexandria on Saturday and Leon P. Fiecke became the 101st fatality of the year when he rolled his SUV and was thrown from his vehicle south of Howard Lake Sunday evening.

Of the 102 traffic deaths to date this year, three were motorcycle fatalities.

Of the 89 motor vehicle occupant deaths nine traffic fatalities include incidents with snowmobiles, an ATV, a bicycle and pedestrians.

31 of those killed in motorcars were reported to have not been wearing seatbelts.

At the same stage last year there were 99 traffic fatalities, eight of which were motorcycle riders.
