Pedestrian Accident in Santa Ana
Pedestrian crashes can carry a very heavy toll on victims and family members. According to estimates, approximately 90% of all accidents involving pedestrians will result in injuries to the victim. Pedestrian accidents are more serious for a variety of reasons. Mainly, pedestrians are very vulnerable due to their lack of protection from the impact of the accident. Pedestrians are more likely to be struck when they are walking across a street. At this point, drivers can be traveling at high speeds and may not see the pedestrian until it is too late, resulting in a major collision.
