10 People in Licking County Die in Traffic Accidents

by Emily Baird on July 19, 2010

Traffic deaths are up in Licking County.

The Licking County Safe Communities program is reporting that 10 people died in accidents over the past six months. That’s three more fatalities than this time last year.

Each of these deaths is costing the county more than three million dollars a piece. That statistic stems from lost years of life and productivity.
