Fatal Long Beach Pedestrian Accident
Each day, there are thousands of crashes reported on California’s roadways. Accidents involving pedestrians are among the most serious types of crashes. Pedestrians have no protection from the impact of the accident and are extremely likely to suffer injuries when they are hit by vehicles. According to statistics, it is estimated that approximately 80 to 85 percent of pedestrian accidents will result in injuries, and many of the injuries will be serious in nature.
The cause of every pedestrian crash must be closely investigated. Many pedestrian collisions take place at intersections and also happen at night and during the early morning hours. Low visibility is among the main causes of accidents involving pedestrians. Both drivers and pedestrians should always use the highest level of vigilance in order to reduce the risk of a catastrophic accident.
