Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

The most common pedestrian accidents and fatalities occur when pedestrians are hit by a car driven by a negligent driver. The common type of accidents include

  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted drivers, most often texting or looking at their cell phones while driving
  • Reckless drivers who don’t slow down when approaching crosswalks
  • Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, three out of every four pedestrian fatalities occur in the evening hours, after the sun has set. Driving when it’s dark outside is when drivers need to pay the most attention to the road and pedestrians outside of the road.
