MINNESOTA NEWS ROUNDUP: Fourth of July the deadliest day of the year on Minnesota roads
The Fourth of July has become the deadliest day of the year on Minnesota roads. There have been 19 road deaths on Independence Day during the last five years - and 13 of those were drunken-driving related. State Patrol Lieutenant Eric Roeske urges partiers to plan ahead for a sober ride. A D-W-I offense can result in loss of license for up to a year and possible jail time. Roeske says extra patrols will be out across the state.
