MO fails preventable death report

Missouri has failed to protect citizens from preventable deaths according to a new report. The National Safety Council filed a report grading states in regards to policies and actions taken to protect citizens from deaths related to poisonings, distracted driving and falls. Though the report says no state does enough Missouri was ranked dead last in terms of effectiveness of policies regarding speeding, child seats, smoke alarm installation, firearms and other hazards. Illinois ranked second, but faced low scores in home and community protection policies. The NSC says 146,000 are killed every year from preventable accident.
