WA State Highway Fatalities Down Over Holiday

Highwway fatalities were down over the Christmas weekend compared to last year. There was just one highway death last weekend according to the Washington State Patrol - a hit-and-run in Auburn. There were four over the same time period last year.

There were more DUI arrests though. The exact numbers aren't available yet so I'll get back to you on that.
