KSP Reports Eight Deaths on Kentucky Roadways Last Week

highway deaths UKblue 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (1/14/13) – Preliminary statistics indicate that eight people died in eight separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013.
 
One single-fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Jefferson, Meade, Morgan and Webster. The victim in Jefferson County was not wearing a seat belt and the use of alcohol was involved in the Morgan County crash.

One motorcycle crash fatality occurred in Fayette County and one in Scott County. The Fayette County crash involved the use of alcohol.

One fatality was the result of a crash involving an animal drawn vehicle in Simpson County.

One pedestrian was killed in McCreary County.

Through Jan. 13, preliminary statistics indicate that 15 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is nine less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 10 motor vehicle fatalities, three victims were not wearing seat belts. One of the two motorcycle fatalities was not wearing a helmet. Two pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of five 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.
