NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Tennessee Highway Patrol released its figures from Bonnaroo weekend. State troopers worked nearly 6,000 hours over the six-day weekend, investigating 17 wrecks, one of which was fatal.
The number of the total wrecks was down significantly from last year when troopers responded to 29 incidents. None of which were fatal, though.
“This is one of the busiest times of the year for our agency," THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. "State Troopers worked around the clock to provide tourists and citizens of Tennessee with a safe and secure event.”
Troopers cite 22 drivers for speeding and nine people for driving under the influence. Nine drivers, too, were found to be driving on suspended or revoked licenses.
