TOPEKA, KS (KCTV) -

The Kansas Highway Patrol has released data from its Independence Day holiday activity.

The reporting period ran from 6 p.m. on Friday to 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday.

No fatal crashes were reported during the holiday period.

“During what was projected to be an exceptionally heavy travel period, Kansas highways provided safe routes of travel for our citizens, as well as for those passing through the state,” said Colonel Mark Bruce, KHP Superintendent. “Most important, however, is the fact that no traffic fatalities occurred during the 2017 reporting period. I am thankful we avoided the needless loss of any lives over the holiday.”

KHP responded to 1,333 incidents over the period, including 22 arrests of people driving under the influence of alcohol.

Both of these numbers are up from both 2016 and 2015.
