Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Pedestrian accidents are more deadly than other kinds of collisions because pedestrians are not adequately protected. Due to their lack of protection, they run the risk of suffering life-threatening injuries or perhaps death. An estimated 110,000 pedestrians are hurt each year in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of pedestrians killed in 2018 increased by 250 over the previous year.

It’s a criminal in and of itself to flee the scene of an accident. Sadly, hit-and-runs still happen daily in the United States. It’s a sad fact of life in the United States that one hit-and-run accident occurs every minute. In the United States, there were roughly 2,049 people killed in hit-and-run accidents in 2016. There were around 682,000 hit-and-runs in the United States in a given year. Hit-and-run drivers frequently strike pedestrians and flee the scene of the crime.
