Dunbar Explains Reporting of Road Deaths DENVER Ifl -- Colorado includes in iis automobile death toll only fatal accidents occurring on highways because that Is the system of reporting set up by the National Highway Safety Council, Ally. Gen. Duie W. Dunbar said Thursday. Dunbar Is head of the Colorado Highway Safety OouncH "We do our policing on highways," Punbar said. "Our efforts are concentrated on'keeping highways safe foi travel." The attorney general gave the answer to reporters in explaining why the deaths of 12 persons Tuesday In a train-truck accident near Vroman, on a private rond just off the highway, were not added ID the highway death toll.., Highway patrol officials made similar statements. Colorado -law, Dunbar said, docs 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 :he basis of being helpful in a ime of tragedy. Gov, McNichols has asked Patrol Chief Gilbert R. Carrel for a personal report on the accident. i Dunbar said he personaly dislikes the practice of reporting the number of highway fatalities. He said that a much more accurate record of traffic safely 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 has no knowledge about the reason tie Highway Safety Council decided to use the number of deaths on highways as the traffic safety yardstick.
