Fourteen Killed on Kentucky Roadways During Labor Day Holiday Period

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) - Preliminary statistics* show that 14 people died in 10 separate crashes on Kentucky's roadways during the 2004 Labor Day holiday period. The number of fatalities increased by three from the 2003 Labor Day holiday period during which 11 people died in 11 crashes.

Of the 10 fatal Labor Day holiday crashes, preliminary data indicates alcohol was a suspected factor in three of the crashes. Ten of the 14 victims were not wearing seat belts.

One triple fatality crash occurred in Carter County. Two double fatality crashes were reported, one in Kenton County and one in Powell County. Single fatality crashes occurred in Boone, Bracken, Laurel, Logan, Magoffin, Pike and Webster counties.

The official Labor Day holiday period ran from 6 p.m. Friday Sept. 3, 2004 through 11:59 p.m. Monday, Sept. 6, 2004. All statistics are from that time period.

As of Sept. 6, Kentucky has recorded 636 highway fatalities in 2004. Last year at this time, 619 people had lost their lives on Kentucky roadways.

*These statistics are still preliminary as KSP waits for all local law enforcement agencies to report any crashes and fatalities that may have occurred in their areas.
