The Virginia State Police had a relatively safe and quiet Memorial Day holiday weekend, both in the Twin Counties and throughout the state. In our area, only one accident resulted in minor injuries and overall, state traffic fatality numbers were down.
According to First Sgt. Michael Musser with the state police office in Galax, the Twin County area saw 18 total accidents from Friday through Monday evening. One of those accidents resulted in minor injuries. “Traffic was heavy as usual for Memorial Day and, fortunately, we had no major accidents,” Musser said.
