Preliminary figures indicate a decline in traffic fatalities over the Fourth of July weekend, according to statistics released by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

THP reported seven fatalities recorded statewide during the extended 96 hour weekend. Last year the state recorded 19 fatalities.

THP also recorded arrests of 119 people on suspicion of DUI and 1,414 seat belt violations.

If these initial figures hold true, it would be the lowest number of traffic fatalities on record for the Fourth of July.
