Increase in driving doesn't totally explain higher fatality rate

Many Minnesota motorists took advantage of the cheap gas prices in 2016 by using their cars more often. The increase in vehicle miles traveled last year was probably one of the reasons why there was also an increase in car accident deaths from the previous. However, analysts say that the higher number of roadside fatalities in 2016 cannot be explained in full by that reason.

Train engineer involved in crash was under the influence

Minnesota residents who use Amtrak may be interested to learn that the engineer who was responsible for causing a train to crash in April 2016 had marijuana and opioids in his system when the accident occurred. The crash, which was heading from New York to Georgia, resulted in the death of two Amtrak workers and caused 35 others to suffer injuries.
