The AAA is predicting this to be the highest single year increase in Thanksgiving travel since 2005, with nearly 2.2 million Ohioans traveling between Wednesday and Sunday.

The leading cause of work-related deaths in the U.S. is vehicle crashes, costing employers around $60 billion each year in combined medical expenses, legal costs, property damage and lost productivity.
