Campaspe Shire has the equal third highest road toll of all of Victoria’s municipalities this year.
According to the Transport Accident Commission there were nine fatalities on Campaspe’s roads this year.
This places it behind Greater Geelong (with 14 fatalities) and Greater Shepparton (11 fatalities) and the same as Kingston, Greater Bendigo, Hume and Wyndham (all nine fatalities).
Eight of those killed in Campaspe were males and four were between 18 and 25 years old.
Five were cars which ran off straight roads.
Six were motorists, one was a pedestrian, one a passenger and one a cyclist.
Earlier this year, the Riv reported Campaspe police service area Inspector Martin Dorman as saying eight of the nine incidents occurred in 100km/h zones.
The nine fatal incidents included the death of Angelique Kolenaty, who was killed by a train on Ogilvie Ave in June and the death of a 77-year-old cyclist who came off his bike in Kyabram in October.
State-wide, 272 people have been killed on roads this year, down from 284 at the same time in 2011.
About two thirds of this year’s fatalities were men and more than half happened on rural roads.
Last year, there were two fatalities in Campaspe Shire.
