Highway Deaths 01 300FRANKFORT, KY (3/18/13) – Preliminary statistics indicate that seven people died in seven separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Mar. 11 through Sunday, Mar. 17, 2013.
 
One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Allen, Bell, Casey, Christian, Pulaski and Trigg. The victims in Allen and Christian counties were not wearing seat belts. The crash in Pulaski County involved the suspected use of alcohol.

One pedestrian was killed in Jefferson County in a crash that involved the suspected use of alcohol.

Through Mar. 17, preliminary statistics indicate that 107 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 31 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 94 motor vehicle fatalities, 47 victims were not wearing seat belts. One of the three motorcycle fatalities was not wearing a helmet. Nine pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 26 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of Mar. 17, Kentucky has had 21 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.
