Through June 16, preliminary statistics indicate that 271 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 73 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 218 motor vehicle fatalities, 108 victims were not wearing seat belts. Twenty-three of the 34 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The one ATV fatality was not wearing a helmet. One bicycle rider has been killed. Sixteen pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported.

Citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free at 1-800-222-5555. Callers will remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.
 
These statistics are still preliminary as KSP waits for all local law enforcement agencies throughout the state to report any crashes and fatalities that may have occurred in their areas.
