The Ohio Highway Patrol reports slightly fewer traffic fatalities over this year's Labor Day weekend than in 2018. 

Ten people were killed in crashes this year, down from 12 a year ago. Alcohol was a factor in at least two of the deaths. Three others were not wearing seat belts. Troopers made over 660 arrests for impaired driving and nearly 350 drug-related arrests.
