(KFVS) -

The Missouri Highway Patrol released crash numbers for the Fourth of July weekend.

Corporal Clark Parrott with Troop E of Missouri Highway Patrol. Troop E covers 13 counties in southeastern Missouri.

The Highway Patrol investigated 39 traffic crashes, 10 injuries, and zero deaths.

Last year, the Highway Patrol investigated 64 traffic crashes, 42 injuries, and 1 fatality over the Fourth of July weekend.

Parrott says traffic crashes are down because the Highway Patrol has increased their patrol on holiday weekends. He says more troopers are out on the roads which causes people to slow down and pay more attention to driving.
