Preliminary statistics indicate that five people died as the result of injuries sustained in five motor vehicle-related crashes on Kentucky’s roadways from Monday, Sept. 23 through Sunday, Sept. 29.
 
One single-fatality, motor vehicle crash occurred in each of the following counties: Cumberland, Fleming, Floyd and Powell. The victims in Cumberland, Floyd and Powell counties were not wearing seat belts. The crashes in Cumberland, Fleming and Powell counties involved the suspected use of alcohol.

One bicycle rider was killed in Jefferson County.
 
Through Sept. 29, preliminary statistics indicate that 473 people have lost their lives on Kentucky roadways during 2013. This is 76 less than reported for this time period in 2012. Of the 365 motor vehicle fatalities, 182 victims were not wearing seat belts. Forty-two of the 63 motorcycle fatalities were not wearing helmets. The nine ATV fatalities were not wearing helmets. Two bicycle riders have been killed. Thirty-three pedestrians have been killed. One fatality involving an animal drawn vehicle has been reported. A total of 102 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol. As of Sept. 29, Kentucky has had 62 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.
