Dunbar Explains Reporting of Road Deaths DENVER 11} - Colorado Includes In Its automobile death toll only fatal accidents occurring on highways because that Is the system of reporting tet up by the National Highway Safety Council. Atty. Gen. Duke W. Dunbar said Thursday. Dunbar is head of the Colorado Highway Safety Council "We do our policing on highways," Dunbar said. "Our efforts are concentrated on'keeplnt; highways safe foi travel." The attorney general gave the answer to reporters in explaining why the deaths of (2 persons Tuesday In a train-truck accident near Vroman, on a private road Just off the highway, were not added to the highway death loll., Highway patrol officials made similar statements. Colorado law, Dunbar said, does not even require the highway patrol to Investigate or report deaths which occur on private property. He said the patrol went to work on the train-truck crash on the basis of being helpful in a time of tragedy. Gov, McNichols has asked Patrol Chief Gilbert R. Carrel for a personal report on the accident. · Dunbar said he personaly dislikes the practice of reporting the number of highway fatalities. He said that a much more accurate record of traffic safety could be obtained by reporting the number of fatal accidents, rather than the number of people killed. Reporting of the number of fatalities, he said, contains too great an element of luck--whether a single persons Is killed In an accident or whether several lose their lives. The attorney general said he bis ao knowledge about the reason the Highway Safety Council decided to use the number of deaths on highways as the traffic safety yardstick.
