The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be keeping an eye out on the highways this holiday weekend. AAA says with 44.2 million Americans traveling 50 miles or more away from home, this will be the most traveled Independence Day holiday ever. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, July 4th also ranks as the deadliest day on the nation's highways.  That finding is  based on an analysis of crash records from 2010 to 2014.  The biggest contributing factor:  alcohol.
