ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Families of those killed in traffic crashes will have the opportunity to memorialize their loved ones in a new website being launched by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
“It’s giving families an opportunity to share stories and photos of lost loved ones who have been killed as the result of a traffic crash,” said Cheri Marti of the Department of Public Safety.
Officials hope the website will be a way for families to express their feelings of loss but also a chance for the public to learn from those dramatic stories.
“But the primary goal is really to educate Minnesotans about traffic safety,” said Marti.
The state will verify the basic information about each traffic death but families will be able to express whatever they wish.
MinnesotaCrashVictims.org is set to launch Monday.
