Pierce County road accidents claimed nine lives in 2010
Except that they all involved motor vehicles, there seem to be few commonalities in the nine road fatalities recorded in Pierce County last year.
Those who died in 2010 ranged from a middle-aged man fleeing deputies at 2 a.m. to an elderly woman crossing a city street with her husband at her side on a Sunday morning.
One thing that is consistent is the number -- nine people died on Pierce County roads in each 2010, 2009 and 2008. That compares to 10 in 2007 and five in 2006.
