Pedestrian Traffic Accidents
Car accidents are not limited to vehicles. In 2012, 4,743 pedestrians died in traffic crashes. Pedestrian traffic accidents that occur with a vehicle driving over 30 miles per hour can result in serious injury or fatality. A driver can severely disable a pedestrian even travelling at 10 miles per hour.
