The Georgia Department of Public Safety reported Thursday that no fatal crashes were reported in Georgia over the 30-hour Christmas holiday travel period.

The Georgia State Patrol said it investigated 90 traffic crashes that resulted in 51 injuries between 6 p.m. Christmas Eve and midnight Christmas Day.

Last year, law enforcement officers statewide investigated a total of 4,407 crashes over the Christmas holiday period that resulted in 371 injuries and 11 fatalities over a longer 102-hour holiday period.

In another traffic-related note, the Georgia Department of Transportation has reminded motorists that it has suspended construction-related lane closures on the state’s interstates and major state routes all the way through 5 a.m. January 2.
