Ohio is beefing up its investigations into the source of drugs or alcohol suspected of being the cause of serious or fatal wrecks.
While state highway patrol troopers will continue to focus on drivers suspected of being impaired, state investigative agents now will look for possible criminal violations stemming from the source of drugs or alcohol. The patrol says nearly 400 people are killed each year in alcohol-involved crashes. The state
also is announcing special investigations into suspected human trafficking in liquor establishments and investigations of serious violations of Ohio's liquor laws.
