Total Delaware Traffic Deaths Up from 2019

Total traffic deaths have increased from 2019, a new Delaware Police analysis shows. The data is collected from the first two weeks of January, and may set the tone for the upcoming year.

Total traffic deaths have increased from 6 individuals to 8, an unfortunate uptick that may be partially accredited to lack of seat belt use, as shown below:

This statistic includes teen Jordan Tate, who passed away after being hit by a school bus in New Castle, Delaware on January 10th, 2020. Tate and her friends were driving home from school when a school bus carrying elementary students collided with her car. Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene, with her 3 passengers sustaining injuries ranging from non-life threatening to critical condition. In this circumstance, Jordan’s death and her passengers injuries are covered under the school bus’ insurance through the State of Delaware.
