Warm Winter Blamed on More Accidents | News
The Minnesota State Patrol says the warm Winter is partly to blame for a spike in car crashes. So far this year, 59 people have been killed in crashes. That's a jump of 23 percent compared to this time last year. Troopers say the roads are in better shape so people are driving faster, and many aren't wearing their seatbelts. 66 percent of those killed so far were not buckled up.
