A Georgia based publication has ranked Kentucky fourth in the nation for per capita industry activity in 2013.
Site Selection magazine, an Atlanta-based publication, has rated states annually since 1978 on the total number of qualified projects as tracked by Conway Data Incorporated New Plant database.
This is also the first year the publication has ranked states on a per capita basis.
Governor Steve Beshear says the ranking reflects the state's dedication to economic growth, attracting new businesses and supporting the expansion of existing companies and reaching out to global markets through exporting.
According to the governor's office, 281 location or expansion announcements were reported last year in Kentucky, which resulted in over 14,000 projected new full-time jobs.
State officials also say capital investments were estimated at nearly $3.3 billion last year.
Kentucky State Police investigated a single-vehicle, injury collision that occurred on Interstate 24, around the 90 mile-marker Tuesday afternoon.
State Police say the preliminary investigation revealed that sometime around 1:41 p.m., 24 year old Christopher Finley of Fort Campbell was westbound on Interstate 24 in the left lane, when his vehicle traveled over a patch of ice, which caused him to lose control.
Police say Finley's vehicle crossed both lanes of travel and exited the right shoulder of the roadway and struck an embankment and overturned and came to rest upright.
Finley was not injured, but his wife, 24 year old Sarah Finley of Fort Campbell, was transported by ambulance to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital for treatment. Police say the couple were both wearing seatbelts and their 3 year old son, Jacob Finley, was secured in a child safety seat and was not injured in the wreck.
Oak Grove Fire & Rescue and Oak Grove EMS also assisted at the scene.
