The Michigan State Police announced the results of preliminary reports that indicate five people lost their lives in four separate crashes during the 2013 Memorial Day Holiday weekend. In comparison, 10 people died in traffic crashes during the 2012 holiday weekend.

Of the five fatalities, two were known to have used seat belts. Alcohol was not a factor in two of the crashes and was unknown in the others.

Captain Kari Kusmierz, commander of the MSP Training Division, says “the numbers are preliminary and only reflect those reported to the MSP as of Monday, May 27th. The MSP continues to urge motorists not to drink and drive, to always use proper restraints and to drive safely.”

The 2013 Memorial Day holiday weekend ran from 6 p.m. on Friday, May 24 through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 27th.
