Minnesota names 13 deadliest counties for drunk driving

Minnesota named its 13 deadliest counties for drunk driving Friday, which law enforcers said they will target more with drunken-driving patrols in the future, according to the Star Tribune.

Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin, Olmsted, Otter Tail, Ramsey, Rice, St. Louis, Scott, Sherburne, Stearns, Washington and Wright counties have accounted for more than half of the state's alcohol-related deaths over the past three years.

Hennepin, the most populated county, tallied the most deaths with 60 in 2006-08.

The counties have also resulted in 13,000 arrests in the last five years, according to the Pioneer Press.
