Crash Statistics Continue To Climb in County

For the second straight month, motor vehicle accident investigations increased in Scotland County. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, troopers investigated five crashes in the county in June, an increase from just two accidents during the month last year.

The spike followed a huge jump in May, when there were nine crash investigations in 2005, compared to just one during the same month in 2004.

So far in 2005, Scotland County has witnessed a 200-percent increase in the crash statistics compiled by the Patrol. Troopers have worked 38 motor-vehicle crash scenes in the community. In 2004 there were just 18 accidents during the first half of the year.

Traditionally at the bottom of the Troop B numbers, Scotland County has leaped past several of the 15 counties in the recording area to rank 9th highest ahead of Chariton (26), Knox (24), Putnam (28), Schuyler (18) Shelby (16) and Sullivan (37) counties.

Despite a slight decline in 2005, Randolph County still keeps the patrol the busiest with 117 wrecks through June. Macon County is second with 97 followed by Marion County with 85 and Adair County with 63.

There were four injuries in Scotland County in June, bringing that total to 18. Overall, 105 motorists were hurt in Troop B accidents in June with one fatality. There have been 21 deaths on the regions roads in 2005, up from 15 in 2004.
