One crash resulting in death, one resulting in injury and 64 arrests involving drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs were reported this week by 12 law enforcement agencies participating in an anti-DUI crackdown in San Luis Obispo County.

A total of 14 agencies are participating in the Summer/Labor Day National Anti-DUI Campaign launched at midnight Friday.

Statistics as of midnight Sunday, released by the Avoid the 14 Task Force showed a fatal DUI collision near Shandon, an injury DUI collision in Atascadero and 64 DUI arrests scattered across the county.

A task force spokesman said not all of the agencies had reported their anti-DUI results when the statistics were released Tuesday.

Arrest data from 2012 were not available for comparison, but 60 individuals were arrested for driving under the influence during the first 10 days of the Avoid the 14 DUI Winter Mobilization period Dec. 14, 2012, to Jan. 1, 2013.

The anti-DUI campaign will continue through midnight Monday.
