Fatal Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Accidents involving pedestrians often lead to serious injury and death. Pedestrians lack the protection drivers and motorcycle riders have in the event of a fatal accident. SHSO data estimates that 6,721 pedestrians were killed on U.S. roads in 2020, an increase of 4.8% from the 6,412 pedestrian fatalities in 2019.

Every day, hundreds of pedestrians are seriously injured or killed due to traffic accidents regardless of whether they were walking on sidewalks, crossing the intersection, in a marked crosswalk, or sharing the road’s shoulder.

Children and the elderly in California are especially a risk of injury or death in a pedestrian accident. Approximately 4,000 elderly Americans were injured in the previous year, while 700 were killed across the country due to pedestrian accidents. Some common reasons for pedestrian accidents are negligent driving, speeding, and drivers failing to yield to pedestrians.
