#' Plot accidents by year and state
#'
#' This function will create a map plot of accidents in a state for one year
#'
#' @param state.num integer value representing a state in the FARS dataset (valid inputs: 1-56)
#' @param year integer value representing the year you want accidents plotted for
#'
#' @return A map plot of accidents in one state for one year
#'
#' @importFrom dplyr filter
#' @importFrom maps map
#' @importFrom graphics points
#'
#' @note State numbers outside the valid range (see above) will throw an error
#' @note States with no accidents to plot will produce a warning message
#'
#' @examples
