DUIs, fatal crashes down over holidays
California had only two fatal collisions, with one of those occurring in the Northern Division, which serves Colusa County, said Williams Area CHP Public Information Officer Kristin Murphy.
The CHP released Driving Under the Influence and collision statistics for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
"I think it was pretty much a normal year. It wasn't anything that was outrageously high or anything of that nature," Murphy said.
In the Northern Division — which extends from Lake County to the south up to the Oregon border — there were 10 DUIs and 10 arrests. That number marked the fewest number of any of California Highway Patrol's eight divisions. Statewide, there were 324 DUI's and 334 total arrests.
While statistics were not immediately available for the change in the number of DUI's and fatal collisions in Colusa County, Murphy said there were "definitely fewer DUIs than we had last year."
