Pedestrian Crashes in California
When a pedestrian accident occurs, it normally leads to very serious injuries for victims. Pedestrians have no protection from the force and impact of a crash. Further, most pedestrian accidents take place so suddenly and unexpectedly that there is little time to react in order to avoid the collision. This leaves victims in a precarious position where they are most likely to suffer major injuries when they are struck by a car.
The majority of pedestrian accidents in California take place at the intersection and street crossings. This is where a driver is least likely to be on the lookout and where pedestrians and drivers typically mix. Negligent driving is the main cause of most serious California pedestrian crashes. Both drivers and pedestrians should always be aware of their surrounding in an effort to lower the risk of a serious crash.
