New Hampshire safety officials see some troubling trends in traffic fatalities so far this year.

Seven people have died in traffic accidents in 2020, the Office of Highway Safety said Friday. Two of them involved pedestrians, and officials say the deaths highlight the need for both drivers and pedestrians to be more careful.

Pedestrians should avoid wearing head phones or using cell phones while walking so they can hear car horns or crosswalk signals, they said, and should use flashlights or head lamps at night.

Of the five other fatal crashes, four involved victims who were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the vehicles.
