Eight Die on Kentucky Roadways Last Week

highway deaths green 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (11/18/13) - Preliminary statistics* indicate that eight people died as the result of injuries sustained in eight motor vehicle-related crashes on Kentucky's roadways from Monday, Nov. 11 through Sunday, Nov. 17.

One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Bracken, Floyd, Green, Jefferson, Kenton and Livingston. The victims in Floyd, Green, Jefferson, Kenton and Livingston counties were not wearing seat belts. The crash in Floyd County involved the suspected use of alcohol.

One pedestrian was killed in Fayette County and one in Jessamine County.

Through Nov. 17, preliminary statistics* indicate that 564 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 94 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 431 motor vehicle fatalities, 218 victims were not wearing seat belts. Forty-four of the 71 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The 10 ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. Three bicycle riders have been killed. Forty-eight pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. One person died when they jumped from a moving vehicle. A total of 126 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of Nov.17, Kentucky has had 70 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.
