Virginia saw fewer crashes this Memorial Day weekend

VIRGINIA -      The number of deadly crashes across the Commonwealth this holiday weekend dropped from last year.

     In all, eight people lost their lives in eight separate crashes. Last year, nine people died in crashes across the state. Virginia State Police credit the drop in deaths to a new program that kicked off around midnight Thursday.

     One of the crashes happened in Scott County, Virginia.

     Of the eight people that died, seven were not safely buckled up.
