Kentucky Makes Another Horrific Top Ten List

November 20th, 2012 · No Comments

And you won’t like this one:

The nation’s red and blue states often are miles apart in social attitudes and, of course, in political outlook.

It turns out that they also divide into distinct camps when it comes to a grimmer measure — fatal traffic accidents.

The stats:

State — Deaths per 100K people — total killed

  • Wyoming — 27.46 — 155
  • Mississippi — 21.58 — 641
  • Arkansas — 19.27 — 563
  • Montana — 19.07 — 189
  • Alabama — 18.01 — 862
  • Oklahoma — 17.76 — 668
  • Kentucky — 17.49 — 760
  • South Carolina — 17.47 — 810
  • South Dakota — 17.15 — 140
  • West Virginia — 16.99 — 315

Fun stuff. A statistic to be proud of, right?

Head – desk.
