PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW) -- Portage County has recorded its highest number of traffic fatalities in five years.

10 people died on the roads there in 2010. Nine of those were alcohol-related.

"That's what we want to try and stop. We don't want any fatalities in Portage County, obviously, but we want to cut the number of alcohol-related fatalities period," said Portage County Coroner Scott Rifleman.

 

The coroner says this is the highest percent of alcohol related deaths in over a decade.
