UNDATED (KNSI) Five deaths over the weekend have pushed Minnesota's traffic fatalities over the 200 mark this year, nearly a month earlier than in 2012.
State Patrol Lieutenant Colonel Matt Langer say it's alarming and frustrating to those that dedicate their lives to traffic safety.
He says "we just have far too many people dying on our roadways."
Langer says crashes are preventable and motorists need to pay attention, drive at safe speeds, drive sober and buckle up.
