    I am quite certain that the table, on the page categorizing traffic accidents with material damages, injuries and fatalities is incorrect for 2017, as there was a car accident resulting in a fatality in June 2017.

  2. How can the statistics say no fatal car accidents? Franklin was killed as a direct result of the car accident in St John’s.
