Nearly double in Shelby

By Lisa King

Nearly twice as many people died on Shelby County roads in 2009. There were nine deaths in Shelby, up from five in 2008, which is in stark contrast to statewide numbers released by the Transportation Cabinet on Tuesday. Those figures indicate 44 fewer people were killed in Kentucky last year, the fifth consecutive year of decline. Preliminary figures indicate 782 people lost their lives, down from 826. That number has declined each year since 2005, when the toll was 985. Shelby’s deaths grew even as the number of injury accidents were down: 1,176 in 2009 from 1,236 in 2008.
