Through July 14, preliminary statistics indicate that 332 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 86 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 263 motor vehicle fatalities, 130 victims were not wearing seat belts. Thirty of the 42 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The three ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. One bicycle rider has been killed. Twenty-two pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported.

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.
