Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The frights and sights on Halloween nights can be fun, but they can also be dangerous.

Officials with the Flathead Sheriff's Department recommend trick-or-treating in groups, only in well-lit areas with costumes that do not obscure vision.

This is the night children are more likely to get hurt walking around outside than any other night of the year.

For those a little too old to go door-to-door, this means paying more attention when driving in residential areas, and always having a designated driver if partying is part of the plan.

"On Halloween specifically we see primarily two types of accidents: those involving alcohol and those involving children that may get struck by a car," said Chuck Curry, the Sheriff of Flathead County.
