Missouri – The Missouri State Highway Patrol has released a report on fatalities and injuries from the Fourth of July weekend.

The counties where the fatal crashes occurred were Taney, Monroe, Pike, Adair, Newton, Chariton, Maries and St. Louis. One of the victims was a Colorado man who was struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle on U.S. Highway 24 in Chariton County.

There were no boating deaths reported over the weekend. The Highway Patrol also reported 159 people injured in traffic accidents and 147 people arrested for drunk driving.
