ST. PAUL, Minn. - On what officials say is typically the deadliest day of the year on Minnesota roads, preliminary reports show no fatal crashes occurred on this year's Fourth of July.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) released some Fourth of July numbers Thursday.
The DPS says not all agencies have completed their reports for the Fourth of July travel period (6p.m. Tuesday - 6 a.m. Thursday).
During the same travel periods from 2009 to 2011, there were 21 traffic deaths and 1,536 DWI arrests. The DPS says 14 of those deaths were a result of alcohol-impaired crashes.
For the year, traffic deaths are up from 2011. So far in 2012, there have been 147 deaths compared to 136 at this time last year.
