2009 pedestrian deaths to-date eclipse 2008 total
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported last week that pedestrian deaths are surging.
The 26 Minnesota pedestrian road deaths for 2009 are already more than the 25 fatalities for 2008. At this time in 2008, 17 pedestrians were killed.
DPS is calling for increased motorist awareness of pedestrians and asking pedestrians to cross smartly and legally to combat a typically dangerous time of year for pedestrians.
