July 4 traffic stats: Missouri by the numbers

We hope that all of the regular readers of our St. Louis personal injury blog had enjoyable, safe Fourth of July holidays. Unfortunately, holidays are often a time when some irresponsible members of society get drunk, cause motor vehicle wrecks that injure innocent motorists. In the very worst case scenarios, people die in those violent crashes.

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, three people were killed in car accidents over the July 4 holiday.

The Highway Patrol reported that there were 114 crashes on the holiday celebrating the nation's birth. Of that total, 59 wrecks involved injuries to at least one person.

Law enforcement reported 40 arrests of motorists for driving while intoxicated, as well as 38 people on a variety of drug charges.

There were also five boat crashes across the state, the Highway Patrol said, including a pair of wrecks that involved injuries. There were no fatalities.

The state's law enforcement agency said that this year's holiday period ran from 6 in the evening on July 3 to 11:59 pm on July 4. In a statement, the Highway Patrol said that there were no fatalities on July 3.

We do not know the causes of all the crashes across the state, but we are certain that more than one was connected to drunk driving.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash caused by a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs, contact an attorney experienced in personal injury and wrongful death litigation to learn more about your legal options.
