Holidays prove deadly for drivers

As of 4:00 PM Sunday, eight people had been killed in traffic related deaths on Georgia roads. The Georgia State Patrol says there were 842 accidents and 236 injuries since the holiday travel period kicked off Friday night.

As he hit the road, driver Kyle Percival says his biggest fear is drunk drivers. He says, "I'm hoping they'll be sober, I know we will be. It's scary. The odds are that one out of three is intoxicated in some way. It's real scary. We just have to have a little faith in the Lord and keep going."

The Georgia State Patrol predicted there would be 11 fatalities this weekend. The Christmas holiday ends Sunday at midnight.
