More than 100 Bay Area police departments put out extra patrols and arrested 381 motorists on drunken driving charges over the five-day Independence Day weekend as police blamed drinking for two deaths.

Authorities said they believe alcohol use was a factor in fatal crashes that killed a passenger in a head-on Oakland collision and a motorcyclist on a rural Marin County road.

The death toll was the highest for a Fourth of July weekend since 2003, when five people were killed in alcohol-related crashes. In each of 2004 and 2005, holiday weekend drinking claimed one life.
