Two single-fatality crashes involved motorcycles. Crashes occurred in Fayette and Hardin counties. One victim was wearing a helmet.
 
Through Aug. 11, preliminary statistics indicate that 388 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 76 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 300 motor vehicle fatalities, 153 victims were not wearing seat belts. Thirty-six of the 52 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. There have been six ATV related crashes. One bicycle rider has been killed. Twenty-eight pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 80 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of Aug. 11, Kentucky has had 50 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.
