Four people died in traffic crashes on Alabama roadways during the just completed four-day Fourth of July holiday travel period.

The fatal crashes occurred in Randolph, Lee, Chilton and Montgomery counties during the holiday travel period, which was from 12:01 a.m. Thursday, July 4, to midnight Sunday, July 7.

It is unknown at this time whether alcohol was a factor in any of the crashes.

Seat belts were available in all four of the vehicles involved in the deadly crashes, but only one of the individuals killed was using a seat belt.

Alabama State Troopers investigated 434 traffic crashes, resulting in 154 injuries.

Troopers also issued 2,126 citations for speeding and 607 citations for seat belt/child restraint violations, made 59 DUI arrests and assisted 299 motorists.

At this time, statistics on fatal crashes from other law enforcement agencies across the state are not available.

Those numbers will be available once all activity has been reported.
