Richmond localities leaders in VA car deaths

from the RT-D:

Traffic deaths still high in 3 Richmond-area localities

Chesterfield County, Henrico County and Richmond accounted for more than 8 percent of the people who died on Virginia roads in 2008.

Sixty-eight people died in those three jurisdictions last year, compared with 821 statewide -- the lowest level since Virginia began keeping the records more than 40 years ago and a 20 percent decrease from 2007.

Chesterfield, with 30 road deaths, was second only to Virginia Beach in fatalities last year, while Richmond ranked fifth with 20 and Henrico tied for seventh at 18 in the annual traffic-crash report released last week by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
