Mississippi sees fewer deaths from drunken driving

Mississippi no longer ranks among the top 10 states for deaths caused by drunk drivers, officials say.
Gov. Phil Bryant and law-enforcement officials announced Wednesday that Mississippi’s rate of alcohol-related deaths per million miles driven fell sharply in 2010, the last year with complete statistics.
Mississippi’s rate of drunken-driving deaths has fallen to 20th among states, although it’s still above the national rate.
