A report from the Nebraska Department of Roads shows fewer people died in car wreaks this year compared to 2016.

Ten people died in car crashes in April, that's down from 18 people last year.

Over the past year, more than 70 percent of people who died in car crashes were not wearing safety belts.

The 10 fatalities occurred in 10 crashes. Four of the fatalities were age 24 of younger, one was a bicyclist, one was a pedestrian, two were motorcyclists and the others on local roads, the interstate or rural locations.
