Through July 28, preliminary statistics indicate that 359 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 76 less than reported for this time period in 2012.

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.
