Kentucky State Police Accident Report – March 29, 2013

ksp2 logo 300FRANKFORT, KY (4/29/13) – 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 five people died in five separate crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Apr. 22 through Sunday, Apr. 28, 2013.
 
One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Boyd, Daviess, Franklin, Jefferson and Wolfe. The victims in Boyd, Franklin, Jefferson and Wolfe counties were not wearing seat belts. The Boyd County and Jefferson County crashes involved the suspected use of alcohol.

Through Apr. 28, preliminary statistics indicate that 165 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 48 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 139 motor vehicle fatalities, 70 victims were not wearing seat belts. Six of the 11 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The one ATV fatality was not wearing a helmet. One bicycle rider has been killed. Twelve pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 32 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of Apr. 28, Kentucky has had 33 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.
