LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A recent census says a majority of Arkansas’ work-related deaths in 2015 were linked to transportation.

The Arkansas Department of Labor’s census shows the state had 74 work-related deaths in 2015. That is up from 67 the previous year.

More than half of the 2015 deaths, about 55 percent, were the result of transportation incidents. The transportation-related fatalities include 33 roadway incidents involving motorized land vehicles, three aircraft incidents and one water vehicle incident.

The Southwest Times Record (https://bit.ly/2i5OaGz ) reports that Arkansas is one of 21 states experiencing an increase in work-related deaths.
