Rhona Tarrant and Kat Aaron introduce the new interactive feature in an article that specifically describes ten of the people who have died in car crashes, of the 138 who have been killed so far this year (and at the time of publication).

For an example of what the profiles include, the profile for Charity Hicks, who died while standing at a bus stop on May 31, includes a story from her life, a description of the fatal event, a Google street view image of the location where she was killed, and links to additional media coverage of her death.

Transportation nation is calling for more information on the other New Yorkers who have been killed this year, in the hopes of building a comprehensive archive and memorial of the tragedy that is traffic fatalities.
