Preliminary statistics indicate that six people died in five separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, May 13 through Sunday, May 19, 2013.
 
One double fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in Nelson County. The crash involved the suspected use of alcohol and one of the victims was not wearing a seat belt.
One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Christian, Jefferson and Warren. The victim in Warren County was not wearing a seat belt.
One pedestrian was killed in Jefferson County.

Through May 19, preliminary statistics indicate that 196 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 72 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 164 motor vehicle fatalities, 81 victims were not wearing seat belts. Nine of the 16 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The one ATV fatality was not wearing a helmet. One bicycle rider has been killed. Thirteen pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 39 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of May 19, Kentucky has had 37 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.
