ST. PAUL — At least 410 people were killed on Minnesota roads in 2010.

The preliminary records were released today (Monday) from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.  They project the final 2010 count will be close to the 420 mark — on par with 2009′s total of 421, the lowest number of annual deaths since 1944.  Officials say the 2010 figure will increase during the next few months as additional fatal crash reports are submitted.

Also, state officials say there were just over 26,800 preliminary DWI arrests last year, compared to nearly 33,000 DWI arrests in 2009.
