Numbers on fatal crashes in Arizona have been released by the Arizona Department of Transportation. 

There was a nearly three percent increase in fatal crashes from 2012 to 2013, for 2013 there were over 107,000 crashes in the state.  More than 800 of those were fatal. 

How this breaks down for counties in Southern Arizona is this - Pima County has more than 10,000 crashes with 89 of them fatal; Cochise County has more than 1,400 crashes and 16 of them were fatal; while Santa Cruz County had more than 500 crashes with seven being fatal.

According to ADOT every driver has the key to reducing crashes and saving lives. 

Bicycle fatalities saw the biggest increase in the state, over 66 percent.

The results of the story showed that motor vehicle crashes resulted in almost $3 billion in economic losses for the state.

In Pima County the losses were over $136 million, while in Cochise County they were $28 million and Santa Cruz lost $11 million. 

ADOT is planning to work with local and federal agencies this summer to come up with a plan to try and reduce the number of crashes in the state.
