PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. – Road conditions can change on a dime during Western Washington’s winter months.
In 2021, that number rose to 38.
It is unknown what degree that shift can be attributed to early pandemic precautions—in the first months of COVID-19, many commuters opted to stay home or put off travel, especially during Inslee’s lockdown measures.
Data for 2022 fatal crashes is not yet known, and likely cannot be meaningfully compared to previous years yet.
