Moorhead Police: Nearly Twice as Many Crashes this December

Posted: Updated:

The Moorhead Police Department responded to almost twice as many motor vehicle crashes during the month of December compared to years past. Over the last three years during the months of October, November, and December; Moorhead Police responded to around 100 crashes each of the months. In December 2013, police responded to 191 motor vehicle crashes in Moorhead.

The crash locations have been throughout the city, with no correlation to a specific intersection or street.  Winter weather driving conditions continue to and police urge everyone to take additional safety precaution throughout the winter. 

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety uses the term motor vehicle "crash" instead of "accident" because a traffic crash can be prevented.

They remind everyone to consider the risks to themselves and others and use caution while driving.  Additionally, please allow more time for travel, decrease speeds, drive defensively, and always wear your seatbelt.

More traffic enforcement hours will be provided by Moorhead Police Officers for preventive enforcement of traffic laws to work toward safer roadways for everyone.
