Troopers report that 11 people have died in traffic related incidents over the Thanksgiving holiday travel period.

Alabama State Troopers say they have investigated eight fatal traffic crashes that resulted in the 11 deaths between Wednesday, Nov. 27 and ending midnight Sunday Dec. 1st.

The eight fatal crashes occurred in Russell, Madison, Crenshaw, Walker, Autauga, Barbour, Pickens and Talladega counties.
