The Michigan State Police (MSP) confirmed today that preliminary reports indicate seven people lost their lives in seven separate traffic crashes during the 2012 Thanksgiving holiday weekend. In comparison, seven people died in traffic crashes during the 2011 Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Alcohol was a known factor in three of the seven fatal crashes and one of the seven victims was known to have not used restraints.

“These numbers are preliminary and only reflect those fatalities reported to the Michigan State Police as of 11 a.m. today,” stated Capt. Kari Kusmierz, commander of the MSP Training Division. “The preliminary numbers show no change in fatalities from this same holiday period last year. The Michigan State Police continues to urge motorists to not drink and drive, to always use proper restraints and to drive safely.”

The 2012 Thanksgiving holiday weekend ran from 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, through midnight on Sunday, Nov. 25, 2012.
