Twelve people were killed in crashes on Missouri roads over the Labor Day weekend, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Tuesday.

No one died in boating crashes and no one drowned, the agency said in a news release.

The patrol reported 306 crashes statewide with 146 injuries over the weekend counting period, which began at 6 p.m. Friday and ended overnight.

None of the deadly crashes happened in Mid-Missouri.

The patrol reported 11 crashes on the water with two injuries. Troopers reported 119 DWIs, two boating while intoxicated cases and 19 drug arrests.

Crashes were up this year from last year, when the patrol investigated 286 crashes with 119 injuries. Seven people died on Missouri roads last year.
