One pedestrian was killed in Jefferson County.
 
Through Dec. 15, preliminary statistics* indicate that 609 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 108 fewer than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 473 motor vehicle fatalities, 235 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. Fifty pedestrians and three bicycle riders have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported.

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.
