Yule Accidents Traffic Fatalities Soar Above 500 as 1936 Record Neared By The Associated 1'rfss The nation counted a staggering death toll of 662 today from violent accidents over the Chrlslma-s holiday. Traffic fatalities soared to above 500. the highest since the all-time record of 555 in 1936. Mishaps on the highways — many ice-coated and others made slippery by freshly falling snow—killed 515 persons. That was more than 100 above the 1849 Christinas holiday toll. Accidents from miscellaneous causes—fires, dromiings, falls, etc. —took an additional 147 lives: The grim total, one of the largest for 'fcly three day holiday period, cov- ^ed the 18 hours from 6 p.m. Friday to last midnight. Last year's total for the Christmas holiday was 580. including 107 in a variety of ^ccirietUs. Traffic Toll Slaggcrins The traffic toll was far above the National Safety Council's estimate of 440, which was the highest it ever had predicted for 'he extended Christmas holiday. It more than doubled the number killed in motor accidents over a similar period Dec. 8 (o 11. In that period, an Associated Press survey showed 245 traffic fatalities, equivalent to 75 a day. The council figures show 28,020 traffic deaths In the first 10 months this year, equivalent to 92 a day lor the 304 days. They however, included delayed deaths—not a spot survey. The holiday toll averaged •pproximately 156 a day. Leidini; sta(e £tsterl California, Texas, New York and Illinois led the nation in accidental deaths.
