S.C. road deaths down slightly

Jun 6, 2011 4:28:00 PM - thestate.com
Traffic deaths in South Carolina are down slightly through Sunday compared to the same period a year ago, the State Highway Patrol reports.

Its count, released today, shows 331 deaths compared to 342 a year ago.

That includes 232 motorists, 42 motorcyclists, 36 pedestrians and five bicyclists, the report said. Another 16 people died while in accidents involving golf carts and all-terrain vehicles and other forms of transportation, officials said.

More than half of those killed in vehicle accidents — 134 drivers and passengers — weren’t wearing seat belts as required, the report said.

In the Midlands, Richland County’s count is up slightly to the same period a year ago, to 20 from 14. Lexington County’s numbers have fallen, to 18 from 24.
