The Utah Highway Patrol had a busy Memorial Day weekend, with troopers making nearly 7,000 traffic stops and dealing with more than a hundred crashes throughout the state, including a rollover that resulted in a death.
UHP statistics released on Tuesday show the agency stopped 6,892 vehicles from Friday through Monday. Those contacts included 3,734 speed-related stops and 353 seat belt-related stops.
The agency arrested 56 people suspected of drunken driving and 43 others on alcohol-related charges, such as underage drinking or having an open container in the vehicle. Crashes totaled 110 over the long weekend.
