LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada Highway Patrol says 48 people have died on the state's roadways so far in 2020, up from 40 at this time last year.

That statistic is part of a deadly crash report released by the agency on Monday.

The report compares deadly crash totals from January and February 2020 to the corresponding months in 2019, and breaks down crashes by county and type.

In Clark County, NHP says there have been 27 deaths so far this year compared to 26 last year (3.85% increase), 11 deaths involving pedestrians compared to nine last year (22.22% increase), four deaths involving motorcycles compared to five last year (20% decrease) and zero deaths involving bicyclists compared to three last year (100% decrease).
