One single-fatality, motorcycle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Breathitt, Letcher, Lewis, Meade, Pike and Scott. The victims in Letcher, Lewis, Meade, Pike and Scott counties were not wearing helmets.

Through June 2, preliminary statistics indicate that 236 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 75 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 190 motor vehicle fatalities, 93 victims were not wearing seat belts. Eighteen of the 27 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The one ATV fatality was not wearing a helmet. One bicycle rider has been killed. Sixteen pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 45 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of June 2, Kentucky has had 39 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.
