highway deaths green 300FRANKFORT, KY (3/25/13) – Preliminary statistics indicate that seven people died in six separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Mar. 18 through Sunday, Mar. 24, 2013.
 
One double-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in Estill County.

One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Jefferson, Knox and Perry. The victim in the Perry County crash was not wearing a seat belt.
 
One single-fatality motorcycle crash occurred in Morgan County.

One pedestrian was killed in Jefferson County.

Through Mar. 24, preliminary statistics indicate that 115 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 30 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 100 motor vehicle fatalities, 49 victims were not wearing seat belts. One of the four motorcycle fatalities was not wearing a helmet. Ten pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 26 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol.

As of Mar. 24, Kentucky has had 23 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.
