KY 2014 highway fatality figures released

FRANKFORT, Ky. (January 22, 2015)  –
Highway fatalities in Kentucky increased in 2014 after a record low in 2013.

Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) preliminary figures from a Jan. 16 report indicate 667 people lost their lives on Kentucky roadways last year, up from 638 in 2013. However, it was the second lowest total since 1949, when 573 fatalities were recorded.
Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock, who is Gov. Steve Beshear’s designated representative for highway safety, said saving lives and reducing serious injuries is a top priority of the administration. 
“We are saddened by the fatality increase, and we firmly believe that one fatality is too many,” Hancock said.  “The Governor’s Executive Committee on Highway Safety is committed to providing direction on traffic safety issues as we move ‘Toward Zero Deaths’ on Kentucky’s roadways.”
