One bicycle rider was killed in Jefferson County.
 
Through Sept. 29, preliminary statistics indicate that 473 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 76 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 365 motor vehicle fatalities, 182 victims were not wearing seat belts. Forty-two of the 63 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The nine ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. Two bicycle riders have been killed. Thirty-three pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported.

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.
