9 die in crashes during Labor Day enforcement period

Posted: Updated:

State police say that preliminary numbers show that nine people died from nine crashes during the 2013 Labor Day weekend.

In 2012, six people were killed in traffic crashes over a four-day holiday weekend.

Police say despite the slight increase in the number of deaths in 2013, traffic fatalities are still lower overall in Virginia.

According to preliminary numbers, as of Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013, 458 lives have been lost to traffic crashes in the Commonwealth compared to 514 on the same date in 2012.
