Are Pedestrian vs. Vehicle Accidents Becoming More Common?

Published on Mar 21, 2019 at 4:08 pm in Pedestrian Accidents.

It’s not uncommon to hear about people being hit, injured, or even killed by a vehicle. Pedestrians are put at risk daily by reckless or distracted drivers. Every year, pedestrian vs. motorized vehicle accidents account for 3.2 percent of all traffic crashes in Pennsylvania. While that percentage may not seem high, it’s important to recognize that those collisions account for 13.2 percent of all traffic crash fatalities. Because of that high figure, it begs the question as to whether or not pedestrian crashes are happening more often.
