highway deaths UKblue 300FRANKFORT, KY (4/1/13) – The following is your weekly update on Traffic Activity by the Kentucky State Police (KSP).
 
Preliminary statistics indicate that nine people died in seven separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Mar. 25 through Sunday, Mar. 31, 2013.
 
One triple-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in Christian County.

One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Jefferson, Mason, Metcalfe, Muhlenberg, Pike and Whitley. The victims in Jefferson, Mason, Metcalfe, Muhlenberg and Pike counties were not wearing seat belts.
 
Through Mar. 31, preliminary statistics indicate that 124 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 32 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 109 motor vehicle fatalities, 54 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. As of Mar. 31, Kentucky has had 25 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.
