In a report in the Chattanooga Times, at this rate, 771 people will die in car crashes in Tennessee by the end of the year. Last year, 1,021 people died. In fact, if this pace keeps up, this year will be the tamest one since 1961.
A lot of credit falls on drivers here in the Southeast part of the state. From last year to this year, no place has seen a greater drop off than the Chattanooga District, which stretches to Coffee County in the west, Polk County in the east and Rhea County in the north.
