Pedestrian Accident Statistics

Traffic accidents involving pedestrians have become a serious concern in the U.S. Every 88 seconds, at least one person dies due to a fatal pedestrian accident. In the United States in 2017, 5,977 pedestrians were killed in automobile accidents. In addition, an estimated 137,000 pedestrians were treated in emergency rooms in 2017 for nonfatal crash-related injuries.

Pedestrians are highly susceptible to the dangers on the road. They are the most vulnerable as they don’t have any form of protection that can prevent serious injury in the event of a major accident. Pedestrian accidents in California have also been on the rise. In 2018 alone, approximately 893 pedestrians were killed, which was a 26% increase from the previous year. Meanwhile, more than 14,000 pedestrians were injured.
