Over 35,000 Americans Killed in Traffic Accidents in 2015
According to the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration a total of 677 motorists died on Mississippi roads in 2015. Mississippi’s roadway fatalities are a part of a growing trend of deadly car crashes in the United States, with the National Safety Council estimating that over 19,000 people were killed on U.S. roadways during the first six months of 2016. If this trend continues, we could see over 40,000 traffic deaths nationwide in 2016, which would be the highest in history.
