One traffic death reported over the Thanksgiving holiday travel period

Only one traffic death was reported by the Nebraska State Patrol over the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The patrol reports a person died in a fatal crash in Pawnee County. Two died last year during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Nebraska troopers issued 235 citations and warnings for seat belt violations and 29 child restraint citations and warnings as part of the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign.

A Nebraska Office of Highway Safety grant totaling $20,000 paid for overtime hours by troopers and communication specialists during the four-day holiday travel period.
