One Busy Independence Day!

The sirens sounding through Summit County all weekend could have been one indicator.

The number of people booked into the Summit County Jail could have been another.

The gridlocked traffic in Breckenridge could have been the real indicator.

The bottom line, though, is local fire, police and ambulance workers had their hands full scrambling between calls during the bustling Fourth of July holiday weekend, which packed about 100,000 people into the county.

“We were just plain busy,” Summit County Sheriff John Minor said. “We expect that though.”

Between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Wednesday, 43 people were taken to the Summit County Jail, 18 of whom are charged with DUI, Minor said.

Yes, it was a busy holiday.
