JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Three traffic related fatalities were reported in the state, two in Marshall County, one in Chickasaw County.
Corporal Seibert says there will be more travelers on the roadways during Christmas. He warns against distracted driving. "I have yet to figure it out, whether it's due to people being distracted over a football game or Christmas shopping or whatever but this time of year, we just work a lot of accidents," said Seibert.
Another important thing to keep in mind is vehicle maintenance. Before getting behind the wheel of your car check the tires among other things, to avoid a roadway inconvenience or even tragedy this holiday season.
