Fewer people were killed last month in Wisconsin traffic crashes, compared to the same month a year ago.
Preliminary statistics from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation show 33 people died in March due to crashes on the state’s roadways. That’s seven fewer than March of 2015.
Over the first three months of the year, traffic crashes in Wisconsin claimed 116 lives — including 11 pedestrians, three bicyclists and two motorcycle operators.
The January through March figure is 18 more than the five-year average for the three month period.
