2007 traffic deaths same as last year

The same number of people died on Hall County's public roads in 2007 as the previous year, though it remained a serious reduction from the record number of fatal accidents reached in 2005.

According to accident data maintained by the Hall County Sheriff's Office, 20 people died in traffic accidents in the county in the past year, including three fatal accidents in the city of Gainesville. That number does not reflect four fatal accidents that occurred on private property, including a Dec. 29 all-terrain vehicle crash that killed sheriff's Sgt. James Evans.
