highway deaths green 300FRANKFORT, KY (10/14/13) – 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 nine people died as the result of injuries sustained in nine motor vehicle-related crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Oct. 7 through Sunday, Oct. 13.
 
Two single-fatality, motor vehicle crashes occurred in Lawrence County. One of the victims was not wearing a seat belt and the crash involved the suspected use of alcohol.
One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Clay, Graves, Jefferson and Whitley. The victims in Clay, Jefferson and Whitley counties were not wearing seat belts. The crash in Whitley County involved the suspected use of alcohol.
One single fatality, motorcycle crash occurred in McCracken County. The victim was not wearing a helmet.
One pedestrian was killed in Carroll County and one in Jefferson County.

Through Oct. 13, preliminary statistics indicate that 504 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 71 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 385 motor vehicle fatalities, 190 victims were not wearing seat belts. Forty-four of the 67 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The 10 ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. Three bicycle riders have been killed. Thirty-eight pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 114 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of Oct. 13, Kentucky has had 64 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.
