Seven Die Last Week on Kentucky Roads

Highway deaths 02 black 300KENTUCKY (12/9/13) - Preliminary statistics indicate that seven people died in six separate crashes on Kentucky's roadways from Monday, Dec. 2 through Sunday, Dec. 8.

One double-fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in Barren County. One of the vic-tims was not wearing a seat belt.

Two single-fatality motor vehicle crashes occurred in Jefferson County.

One single fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Estill, Marion and Russell. The victims in all three crashes were not wearing seat belts.

Through Dec. 8, preliminary statistics indicate that 598 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 107 fewer than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 463 motor vehicle fatalities, 232 victims were not wearing seat belts. Of the 72 motorcycle fatalities, 44 were not wearing a helmet. Ten of the 10 ATV fatalities were not wearing a helmet. Forty-nine pedestrians and three bicycle riders have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehi-cle has been reported. A total of 133 fatalities have resulted from crashes involv-ing the suspected use of alcohol. As of Dec. 8, Kentucky has had 74 days with zero highway fatalities reported during 2013.

Citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Ken-tucky State Police toll-free at (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.
