Fatal Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrian accidents are unlike other types of accidents just because pedestrians have no protection in an accident. Those who are riding in cars are in vehicles that weigh an average of at least 4,000 pounds and have seat belts and airbags to protect them.

Pedestrians currently make up a large percentage of traffic fatalities in the past 33 years. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. have increased by 27 percent from 2007-2016, while other traffic-related deaths decreased by 14 percent.

Pedestrians are also more susceptible to hit-and-run accidents as it is easier to drive away and leave after a pedestrian accident. Leaving the scene after an accident is a crime in itself.

Unfortunately, hit-and-run accidents still occur on U.S roadways every day. There are several reasons why motorists flee the scene. Some reasons are intoxication, uninsured, or fear of facing the authorities due to previous legal difficulties.
