Highway deaths 02 red 300FRANKFORT, KY (7/22/13) – The following is your weekly update of incident statistics on Kentucky roadways over the past week, courtesy of the Kentucky State Police.
 
Preliminary statistics indicate that nine people died in nine separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, July 15 through Sunday, July 21, 2013.
 
One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Breathitt, Clark, Henderson, Jefferson, Perry and Warren. The victims in Breathitt and Jefferson and counties were not wearing seat belts and the Jefferson County crash involved the suspected use of alcohol.
 
One single fatality, motorcycle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Jefferson and Pike. Both victims were not wearing helmets and the Pike County crash involved the suspected use of alcohol.

One pedestrian was killed in Breathitt County.

Through July 21, preliminary statistics indicate that 347 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 82 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 272 motor vehicle fatalities, 135 victims were not wearing seat belts. Thirty-three of the 45 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The four ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. One bicycle rider has been killed. Twenty-four pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 71 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of July 21, Kentucky has had 46 days with zero highway fatalities reported during 2013.
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.
