Pedestrian Accident Statistics
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2012,
4,743 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States,
and another 76,000 pedestrians were injured. That averages out to one
crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours, and one pedestrian injury
every 7 minutes.
The CDC also reports that:
Pedestrians are 2.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants
to be killed in a
car accident on each trip.
In 2012, pedestrians 65 and older accounted for all pedestrian deaths.
More than one in every five children between the ages of 5 and 15 killed
in traffic accidents in 2012 were pedestrians.
Alcohol (on behalf of the driver or pedestrian) was involved 48% of the
traffic crashes that resulted in pedestrian deaths.
Speeding increases the likelihood of a pedestrian accident.
Can a Pedestrian Be at Fault in a Car Pedestrian Accident?
While pedestrians do have the right of way on the road, it doesn’t
mean that in the event of an accident they can’t be found at least
partly responsible. Some of the most common situations where a pedestrian
can be found at fault for an accident is:
A pedestrian was crossing the road outside a crosswalk
A pedestrian was crossing against a traffic signal
A pedestrian was walking where pedestrians are clearly not allowed
