State troopers investigate 3 fatal weekend crashes

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama State Troopers say none of the three people who died in Memorial Day weekend crashes were wearing seatbelts.

Sgt. Steve Jarrett said in a statement Tuesday that state troopers investigated three fatal wrecks between Friday evening and early Monday morning. Jarrett says traffic fatalities were reported in Jackson, Shelby and Wilcox counties.

Jarrett says during last year’s Memorial Day weekend travel period, troopers investigated two traffic fatalities involving motorcyclists.
