Hawaii Car Accidents
In the United States, pedestrian accidents mostly happen due to the actions of drivers who don’t stop at traffic lights or stop signs. When driver distraction is involved in pedestrian collisions, texting and driving is becoming an increasingly common problem. It is one of the main causes of auto accidents in the United States. In the year 2020, more than 7,000 pedestrians were killed in car accidents. Most of these accidents were caused by the actions of careless and negligent drivers.
Pedestrians are usually more severely injured than other individuals when they become involved in car crashes. This is because they travel with basically no protection against the force of fast-moving, large vehicles and the pavement. Over 50% of the time, pedestrians suffer severe or even deadly injuries when they become involved in auto collisions.
