Seventeen Deaths on Kentucky Roadways Last Week

Highway deaths 02 green 300KENTUCKY (11/13/12) – Preliminary statistics indicate that 17 people died in 16 separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Nov. 5 through Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012.
 
One double fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in Kenton County.
 
Two single fatality motor vehicle crashes occurred in Marion County. Neither victim was wearing a seat belt.
 
One single fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Boyd, Carroll Clark, Daviess, Floyd, Garrard, Jefferson, Johnson, Madison, Marshall, Nelson and Perry. Four of the victims were not wearing seat belts and five of the crashes involved the use of alcohol.

One motorcycle crash occurred in Trigg County. The victim was not wearing a helmet and alcohol was involved.

Through Nov. 12, preliminary statistics indicate that 628 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2012. This is two fewer than reported for this time period in 2011. Of the 490 motor vehicle fatalities, 276 victims were not wearing seat belts. Of the 73 motorcycle fatalities, 38 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 114 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.
