Nine people were killed in car crashes throughout the Granite State between July 25 and July 30.

Though shocking, those numbers appear to be part of an increasing trend in the total number of fatalities from car accidents.

Data released on Aug. 1 showed that 73 lives have been claimed as the result of car crashes so far this year, according to the New Hampshire Department of Safety Division of Motor Vehicles. That same day, a woman in Tilton was killed in a crash, putting the number at 74.

The number of fatalities is up 52 percent from the 48 fatalities that were reported as of Aug 1., 2015.

Ironically, the hands-free law went into full-effect on July 1, 2015.
