MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Alabama State Troopers are releasing their report on fatal crashes during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. For 2012 there were three fatal collisions involving three deaths.
State Troopers say that's a reduction in the number of fatalities they worked in the previous year. In 2011 there were seven deaths during the same time period.
The three fatal crashes this past weekend took place in Walker, Madison and Winston counties.
Troopers say their preliminary investigations indicate that in two of the three crashes, seat belts were available but were not in use. In the third fatal crash, a motorcyclist was killed.
Despite heavier than usual traffic for holiday travel, troopers were not called to investigate any fatal crashes Sunday or Monday.
Statewide statistics for the Memorial Day holiday period are not available at this time as totals from other law enforcement agencies still are being reported.
