Safe Communities announced today that there have been zero fatal crashes in Wood County this year compared to zero at this time last year.  Let’s keep this trend going!

Rear-end and fixed object crashes are the major causes of crashes in Wood County.  Common factors that contribute to these type of collisions include:

  • Stay focused on your driving
  • Leave 2-3 vehicle lengths between you and the car in front of you
