9 Traffic Deaths in Va. During Labor Day Weekend

Virginia State Police say nine people died in traffic accidents over the Labor Day weekend, up from six fatalities recorded during the same holiday period in 2012.

State police said Wednesday that five of the victims weren't wearing seatbelts. Alcohol was a factor in at least two fatal wrecks.

Two fatal accidents occurred in Chesterfield County. The others occurred in Bland, Campbell, Frederick, Hanover, Lee and Roanoke counties.

Troopers also arrested 108 impaired drivers. More than 11,000 motorists were cited for speeding and more than 2,400 were cited for reckless driving.

The statistics are from Friday through midnight Sunday.
