ST. PAUL (AP) -- Traffic safety officials say Minnesota is on pace this year to exceed last year's total number of road deaths.

So far, more than 400 people have died on Minnesota roads in 2007. Last year, the state didn't reach 400 traffic deaths until Nov. 13.

The number of traffic fatalities in Minnesota has dropped consecutively the last three years.
