Kentucky State Police Accident Report – July 8, 2013

Highway deaths 02 black 300FRANKFORT, KY (7/8/13) – 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 10 people died in seven separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, July 1 through Sunday, July 7, 2013.

One triple-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in Perry County and one double-fatality motor vehicle crash occurred in Mason County.

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

(Five of the fatalities reported above occurred in four motor vehicle crashes during the Fourth of July holiday period, which started at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3 and ended at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 7. The crashes occurred in Barren, Green, Mason and Warren counties. Two of the victims were not wearing seat belts and one of the crashes involved the suspected use of alcohol.)

Through July 7, preliminary statistics indicate that 323 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 74 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 257 motor vehicle fatalities, 128 victims were not wearing seat belts. Twenty-nine of the 41 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The two ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. One bicycle rider has been killed. Twenty-one pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 65 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of June 30, Kentucky has had 43 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.
