State's motorcycle death total up

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — The Maine Public Safety Department said the number of motorcycle deaths on the state's highways is outpacing last year's figure.

The state's highway death toll this year stands at 120, with 20 of those deaths being motorcyclists.

At this time last year, the motorcycle fatal count was 12, and officials say there's still more than a month left of decent motorcycle riding in the state.

Three people were killed during the past week in car crashes in Maine.
