West Virginia roads are more dangerous than the song claims

John Denver fans continue to enjoy the tunes of the country-music singing icon, born as Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. in 1943 and laid to rest in 1997. One of his biggest hits of all time focused on the country roads of West Virginia although modern motorists might say these roadways are anything but the peaceful, calm, rambling lanes the song makes them out to be. In fact, well over 200 of the 337 fatal car accidents in the state in 2011 occurred on rural roads.
