Fatal crashes up this year over last: OPP

32 fatal collisions during the first half of this year

We had a lock down mid-March due to COVID–19, and traffic incidents slowed things down. 
During the last week in April there was a lot more traffic. The local OPP sends out almost weekly reports. We're missing the first three weeks in September and October, plus December.
Oct. a bear was hit. I think it was my Booboo.
