US traffic deaths jump by 10.4 percent in first half of 2016

U.S. traffic fatalities rose by an estimated 10.4 percent in the first half of this year, federal officials said Wednesday, and continued an upward trend that started in late 2014 as the economic recovery accelerated.  The sharp increase in deaths this year follows a 7.2 percent jump in 2015, when there were 35,092 traffic fatalities. For the first half of 2016, 17,775 people died on the road, compared with 16,100 over the same period a year earlier.
