Memorial day weekend one of deadliest on Iowa roads

DES MOINES -- The Iowa Department of Public Safety’s Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau reports that eleven people died as a result of motor vehicle accidents on Iowa roads over the 2009 Memorial Day Weekend. That’s the highest number since 1989 when 12 people died. 1978 saw the highest number of fatalities recorded with 13 deaths. The last year that numbers were higher than average was 2007, when eight traffic related fatalities were reported.
