(St. Paul, MN) — 396 people died on Minnesota roads in 2015 according to the early numbers from the Department of Public Safety. And officials are projecting a total of 405 deaths once all the final crash data is evaluated. That would be the most since 2010 when 411 people lost their lives. Officials say speed was a contributing factor in one in five deaths and drunk driving played a role in one in four deaths. Distracted driving and lack of seat belt use were also significant factors in last year’s road fatalities.
