Roads more deadly in '07

-A A +A
By Jesef Williams

Seven more people died on Lancaster County roads in 2007 than the year before, and the S.C. Highway Patrol points to alcohol use and the failure to use seat belts as major reasons for the spike.

In 2007, 16 crashes in the county resulted in 17 fatalities. That's up substantially from 2006, when 10 crashes resulted in 10 fatalities.

About half of the fatal crashes in the county last year were alcohol-related and about 70 percent are tied to non seat-belt use, Lance Cpl. Ron Johnson said. Other key factors have been speeding and failing to yield to other vehicles.
