It was a deadly holiday weekend on Missouri roadways.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says seven people died over Labor Day weekend, including two in St. Louis.

Troopers investigated 248 crashes that resulted in the deaths and 112 injuries. A bright spot, the number of drunk-driving arrests was down from last year--119 this year, 147 in 2012.
