MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Law Enforcement Agency officials say seven fatalities were reported on the state’s roads and waterways over the holiday weekend.

Sgt. Steve Jarrett said in a statement that the agency responded to four fatal traffic accidents and three boating fatalities between Friday morning and Sunday night.

Officials say traffic crashes in Butler, Madison, Pickens and Sumter counties killed three drivers and a pedestrian.

Jarrett says marine patrol officers investigated boating deaths in Limestone, Lauderdale and Colbert counties. Jarrett says none of the people who died had a life jacket on.

Jarrett says the agency investigated 10 traffic fatalities and one boating fatality during the 2014 Fourth of July weekend.
