One pedestrian was killed in Marshall County. The suspected use of alcohol was involved.

Through June 30, preliminary statistics indicate that 310 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 62 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 246 motor vehicle fatalities, 125 victims were not wearing seat belts. Twenty-eight of the 40 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The two ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. One bicycle rider has been killed. Twenty pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 64 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of June 30, 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.
