TENNESSEE (WRCB) - Tennessee transportation officials reported the lowest number of traffic deaths during the Thanksgiving holiday since 1983. Twelve people were killed during the same time period last year.

From November 26th to November 30th, officials say four people were killed in car crashes. None of the wrecks were alcohol related.

All of the victims were passengers in the vehicles. Two were not wearing seatbelts. The fatalities happened in Davidson, Hamblen and Crockett counties.

Officials say the hard work of state troopers and police helped ensure safe holiday travel.
