Troopers investigate 3 fatal wrecks in Alabama over holiday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The state Department of Public Safety says troopers investigated three fatal crashes this year, down from seven in 2011, over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The crashes occurred in Walker, Madison and Winston counties. Preliminary investigations indicate that in 2 of the three crashes, seat belts were not used. In the third fatal crash, a motorcyclist was killed.
The holiday period began at 6 p.m. Friday and ended Monday. Despite heavier-than-usual holiday traffic, troopers were not called to investigate any fatal crashes Sunday or Monday.
