869 Crashes over the new year's holiday weekend.
That's the statistic from last year, and starting today, the Highway Patrol will be out in force to bring that number down. The patrol says all available officers will be on the roads, starting at 6 tonight and patrolling through midnight on Monday the second. The patrol will be on special look-out for drivers who have been drinking, and say the highways are no place for such activity. Of the 869 crashes over the counting period last year in Missouri, 331 people were injured. 5 died.
