The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced the preliminary number of four traffic fatalities statewide during the 2014 Thanksgiving Holiday period, which began on Wednesday, Nov. 26th and ended at midnight on Sunday, Nov. 30th.
If this year's preliminary figures remain, it would mark the lowest number of vehicular deaths during the Thanksgiving Holiday period since the seven fatalities in 1093.
The department also reported that none of this year's traffic fatalities occurred in alcohol-related crashes. Two of those killed were not wearing seat belts.
Tennessee state troopers investigated a total of 78 crashes, arrested 6 individuals on suspicion of impaired driving and issued 238 seat belt citations on I-40 during the two-day challenge periods.
The Centers for Disease Control said the current influenza virus has mutated, making this year's vaccination less effective.
In an advisory to doctors, the CDC said influenza virus samples taken from October 1st through November 22nd showed just under half, or 48 percent, matched the current flu strains in this year's vaccine.
Just over half, 52 percent, of the samples were different, indicating a mutation or drift of the strain.
The CDC still recommends getting vaccinated, since it can still decrease the severity of the illness.
