Driving Fatalities Exceeds Last Year’s Pace

KDOT spokesman Kirk Hutchinson was not able to give a reason for this spike in traffic fatalities this year. Hutchinson says law enforcement is attempting to crack down on distracted driving including texting as a way of slowing down this year’s fatality numbers.
