ksp2 logo 300FRANKFORT, KY (6/17/13) – The following is your weekly update of incident statistics on Kentucky roadways over the past week, courtesy of the Kentucky State Police.
 
Preliminary statistics indicate that 18 people died in 17 separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, June 10 through Sunday, June 16, 2013.
 
One double-fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in Pike County. Both victims were not wearing seat belts and the crash involved the suspected use of alcohol.
 
Two single-fatality motor vehicle crashes occurred in Scott County. One of the crashes involved the suspected use of alcohol.

One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Boone, Daviess, Gallatin, Jessamine, Laurel, Lewis, Madison, Pike and Shelby. The victims in Jessamine, Laurel, Pike, and Shelby counties were not wearing seat belts. The crash in Laurel County involved the suspected use of alcohol.

One single-fatality, motorcycle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Calloway, Grant and Laurel. The victims in Calloway and Grant counties were not wearing helmets.

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. A total of 52 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of June 9, Kentucky has had 40 days with zero highway fatalities reported during 2013.

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.
