HARRISBURG, Pa. – Thirteen people were killed and 245 others were injured in the 760 crashes investigated by the Pennsylvania State Police during the four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend driving period. This total does not include crashes investigated by local police.

The official holiday driving period was May 24 through May 27. During that time, troopers cited 1,280 individuals for not wearing seat belts and issued citations to 146 motorists for not securing children in safety seats.

Troopers also issued 9,720 speeding citations and arrested 438 operators for driving under the influence. Of the 760 crashes investigated by State Police, 85 of those crashes, including five of the fatal crashes, were alcohol-related.

During last year’s four-day Memorial Day holiday driving period, 13 people died and 311 others were injured in 817 crashes to which state troopers responded.

The statistics cover only those crashes investigated by state police and do not include statistics on incidents to which other law-enforcement agencies in Pennsylvania responded.
