Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrian crashes are among the most fatal types of accidents on the road. Pedestrians are particularly susceptible to the dangers on the road, which accounts for the lion’s share of the problem. They’re defenseless in the event of an accident.

Roughly one person dies every 88 minutes due to fatal pedestrian accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,977 pedestrians were killed in car accidents in the United States in 2017. The number of pedestrians receiving emergency treatment for nonfatal crash-related injuries increased to an estimated 137,000 in 2017.

Unfortunately, California’s roadways are not quite safe enough for pedestrians. California’s pedestrian fatality rate is 25% higher than the national average. In 2018 alone, approximately 14,000 people were injured, while 893 people were killed because of deadly pedestrian accidents. Several pedestrian accidents can be attributed to drivers not obeying traffic rules and not paying attention and those who speed and don’t yield to pedestrians.
