Through Oct. 13, preliminary statistics indicate that 504 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 71 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 385 motor vehicle fatalities, 190 victims were not wearing seat belts. Forty-four of the 67 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The 10 ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. Three bicycle riders have been killed. Thirty-eight pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported.

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.
