Pedestrian Accident Injuries

The number of personal injuries and deaths in the United States every year is on the rise.  There were approximately 137,000 reported pedestrian injuries in the United States in 2017 alone.  To make matters worse, there were 5,977pedestrian crash related fatalities reported in 2017.  This is an average of 1 pedestrian injury as a result of an accident every 4 minutes and 1 pedestrian fatality as a result of an accident every hour and half across the United States.


The most likely to be injured as a result of pedestrian accidents are seniors over the age of 65.  On average seniors account for 14% of all injuries to pedestrians in the United States and 21% of all pedestrian fatalities in the United States during 2017.  Furthermore, 20% of children between the ages of 5 and 9 that were killed in 2017 as a result of a traffic accident were pedestrians.  In 2017, alcohol was linked to at least 49% of traffic related pedestrian deaths where either the vehicle driver or the pedestrian had consumed alcohol.


Pedestrian injuries and death can be prevented by pedestrians being more attentive in busy traffic areas.  When walking at nighttime, pedestrians should do so while carrying a flash light or by wearing reflective clothing so that they are visible to vehicles.   Lastly, if you must walk on the street, you should walk towards oncoming traffic.
