Southern Illinois’ Deadliest Roads

By April 13, 2008July 17th, 2019Highway Safety, Trucking Accidents

The Southern Illinoisan recently ran a three-day series on motor vehicle accidents in Southern Illinois. The series concluded that Illinois 37 is the deadliest roadway and Illinois 149 comes in third.
According to the article titled “Countless lives changed forever,” more than 200 people have been killed in the past decade on Southern Illinois’ deadliest highways. More than half of the fatal accidents involved another vehicle.
Law enforcement officials told reporters Adam Testa and Scott Fitzgerald that excessive speed, sleepiness and inattentiveness on the part of the driver often played a role in the accidents.
