One bicycle rider was killed in Jefferson County.
 
Through Nov. 4, preliminary statistics indicate that 603 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2012. This is 11 fewer than reported for this time period in 2011. Of the 467 motor vehicle fatalities, 267 victims were not wearing seat belts. Of the 71 motorcycle fatalities, 37 were not wearing a helmet. Eleven of the 13 ATV fatalities were not wearing a helmet. Forty-five pedestrians, one scooter/moped rider and six bicycle riders have been killed. A total of 104 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol.
 
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.
