Harrisburg - Seven people were killed and 315 others were injured in the 1,336

From Dec. 21 through Dec. 25, 2012, State Police investigated a total of 1,336

two of the seven people who died in crashes were not wearing seat belts.

Troopers made 348 arrests for driving under the influence and issued 2,152
speeding citations during the holiday period. State police also cited 313 individuals
for failure to wear seat belts and issued citations to 37 drivers for failing to restrain
