One single-fatality motorcycle crash occurred in Morgan County.

One pedestrian was killed in Jefferson County.

Through Mar. 24, preliminary statistics indicate that 115 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 30 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 100 motor vehicle fatalities, 49 victims were not wearing seat belts. One of the four motorcycle fatalities was not wearing a helmet. Ten pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 26 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol.

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.
