Eagle Ford Shale: Deadly wrecks went up dramatically last year

As Jennifer Hiller reports for the San Antonio Express-News, fatal car wrecks in the Eagle Ford Shale area went up 40 percent in 2012.

The president of the Texas Motor Vehicle Association says mostly car drivers are at fault for the accidents, not the truckers.
