(Jefferson County) The number of traffic crashes involving fatalities are down in Missouri compared to this time last year. However, Corporal Logan Bolton with the Missouri State Highway Patrol says the numbers are not down by much.

Botlon says they are still seeing a lot of drivers not paying attention and driving way too fast.

During the most recent 4th of July holiday weekend, locally in Troop C the patrol reported 81 crashes involving 25 injuries and 2 fatalities.
