Five Deaths on Kentucky Highways Last Week

Posted by on Mar 23, 2010

(FRANKFORT, KY) – Preliminary statistics* indicate that five people died in five separate crashes on Kentucky roadways from Monday, March 15 through Sunday, March 21, 2010.

Two of the crashes involved motor vehicles and neither of those victims were wearing seat belts. Single-fatality crashes occurred in Fayette and Jefferson counties.

Three of the crashes involved motorcycles and none of those victims were wearing helmets. Those crashes occurred in Barren, McCracken and Todd counties. The suspected use of alcohol was a factor in the Barren County crash.

Through March 21, preliminary statistics* indicate that 121 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2010. This is 35 less fatalities than reported for the same time period in 2009. There were 104 motor vehicle fatalities and 59 of those victims were not wearing seat belts. Thirteen of those crashes involved a commercial motor vehicle. Twelve fatal crashes involved a pedestrian and 1 involved a scooter. Three crashes involved a motorcycle and none of the victims were wearing helmets. One crash involved an ATV and the victim was not wearing a helmet. A total of 26 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol.

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. Crash data for this report is generated from the Kentucky Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).
