California Pedestrian Accidents
Being the victim of a California pedestrian crash can certainly be a tragic and devastating event. Each year, nearly 1,000 people are killed in pedestrian crashes that take place in our state. This number easily makes California first in the country for its number of fatal pedestrian accidents. There are some ways that pedestrian crashes can be avoided. Generally, both drivers and pedestrians should always be aware of their surroundings and should be on the lookout for potential danger before it happens. Driving in a safe and cautious manner can greatly reduce the odds of a serious accident. Also, looking both ways at intersections and yielding to pedestrians can help to ensure that a tragedy does not occur.
