Edgefield County Only County in State with Zero Traffic Fatalities

web posted January 1, 2014

COUNTY Just two years after reaching a record number of traffic fatalities in the county in 2011, 2013 saw zero traffic fatalities for the year. That honor is made even more special by Edgefield County being the only county in the state without a traffic fatality. "I can't remember the last time we didn't have any," Edgefield County Coroner Thurmond Burnett said Tuesday.

In addition, it was the safest year for deaths combined as well with only two deaths; a murder in April and a plane crash that killed the pilot in late November.

In 2012 there were a total of eight deaths; four traffic fatalities, two murders, one due to fire and one accidental death. In 2011, the deadliest year on record since Edgefield Daily has been keeping statistics, a total of sixteen deaths were reported, including eleven traffic fatalities, three involving children.
