COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say 11 people died on Ohio’s highways over the four-day Memorial Day weekend.

Four of this year’s fatalities were motorcyclists and two were pedestrians.

Troopers arrested 734 people for driving under the influence and issued more than 7,100 citations for seat-belt violations.
