More Deaths On Georgia Roads This Christmas

Christmas Day has now passed, and so has the Christmas Holiday Travel Period.

Statewide, the Georgia Department of Public Safety is reporting 17 deaths on Georgia Roads over the travel period which began at 6:00pm Friday and ended at midnight last night.

The Georgia State Patrol investigated 11 of those fatalities. Nearly 700 crashes were investigated just by the GSP, which resulted in 300 injuries.

The GSP investigated over double the number of accidents this year as compared to last year, and in 2011, the GSP only investigated 1 fatality.
